November 12, 2014

In 2012, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed into law a massive tax cut—the largest any state has ever enacted. The law cut individual rates 25 percent, and repealed the tax on sole proprietorships and other “pass-through” businesses. The rate for top-earners was reduced even further, scheduled to fall from 6.45 to 3.9 percent by 2018.
