Kansas Reduces State Sales and Use Tax Rate

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has signed a bill that reduces the state-level sales and use tax rate from 6.3% to 6.15% effective July 1, 2013. The 0.15% rate reduction replaces the previously scheduled July 1 reduction in the rate to 5.7%. Earlier in the legislative session, this bill and S.B. 78 contained provisions that would have frozen the state sales and use tax rate at 6.3%. The Kansas Department of Revenue has revised the sales and use tax rate publications Information Guide No. EDU-96 and Information Guide No. KS-1700 to reflect the July 1 rate reduction. (H.B. 2059, Laws 2013, effective upon publication in the Kansas Register)
