(TOPEKA, Kan.)—Kansas Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan is preparing to discuss Gov. Sam Brownback's proposals to abolish two popular income tax deductions for homeowners and cancel a scheduled decline in the state sales tax.
Jordan scheduled a Friday morning briefing with reporters.
Brownback wants to eliminate income tax deductions for the property taxes Kansans pay on their homes and the interest charged on their mortgages.
The governor also seeks to keep the sales tax at 6.3 percent instead of letting it to 5.7 percent in July, as state law now requires.
