Middle- and lower-income Kansans will be hurt by Brownback’s tax plan

By Letters to the Editor

The bottom 80 percent of the state’s earners would collectively see a tax hike under Gov. Sam Brownback plan while the Kansans in the top 20 percent income bracket would see substantial tax cuts. Those making $1 million or more per year in Kansas would have a tax cut of over $16,000. However, his plan, which eliminates the earned income tax credit, impacts a single mother with one child who is working full time earning $9.60 per hour. She would experience an annual Kansas tax increase of $442.
