Kansas says it collected $4.4 million dollars less in taxes than anticipated this month.
The Department of Revenue said on Thursday that the lower-than-expected collections may be due to how tax returns have been processed since the April 15 filing deadline.
Spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said the agency can't predict which returns will be processed first.
The state expected to collect nearly $516 million dollars in taxes for the month. Instead, it collected $511.5 million.
