A tax amnesty program for delinquent taxpayers brought in less money than lawmakers anticipated.
The program allowed people and businesses to pay back taxes without a penalty. Lawmakers estimated it would generate $30 million, but the program brought in $23 million.
While the total was $7 million less than expected, Kansas Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan is still happy with the results.
“I think it’s a good number. It’s obviously collection of taxes due, rightfully so they’ve been paid. Most of it was in corporate income. We’re pleased with the number,” Jordan says.
