KS Dems roll out Tax Hike Plan: Sales and Income

TOPEKA — Kansas Senate Democrats said Friday that they will roll out a tax proposal next week that will include raising the income tax to help balance the state budget.

Minority Leader Anthony Hensley said that the plan would also include raising the state sales tax. Gov. Mark Parkinson offered that idea during his State of the State address in January. Democrats are looking at increasing the tax rates for the highest-earning residents.
