TOPEKA — The revised Kansas tax revenue projections proved too bullish in November as the state government collected 5.3% less than anticipated during the month.

Economists and fiscal analysts increased by more than $750 million the state’s projected revenue for the current fiscal year, reasoning inflation would continue to stimulate expansion in tax collections. The adjustment was made prior to Gov. Laura Kelly completing budget recommendations for presentation in January to the 2023 Legislature.
