This law completely eliminates income taxes for all businesses, large and small alike, essentially leaving the states tax burden the sole responsibly of the working class. This will eliminate $4.5 billion in revenue from the state of KS. Where will these cuts effect....likely state workers, schools, and all the social programs that so many of the people left paying taxes rely on.

      The unfair burden that this regressive law puts on the working people of Kansas is unconscionable.

      Fairness is important. I own a business, I can raise my income to pay taxes, individuals often cannot! We businesses do not need lower taxes, we need customers with money leftover after they pay their taxes. The goose that lays golden eggs, so to speak.

      The new tax laws are destroying our state. Children are our future. Cutting programs to help them will hurt us all. We need educated and healthy people.

      When you are adding taxes on the middle/poor class you will be hurting Kansas.Also raising property tax will only make people on Social Security and the working class lose their homes!
