BREAKING NEWS

AXE FOOD TAX

John AndersonNovember 8, 2021

Governor Laura Kelly announced that she will be introducing a bill in the Kansas Legislature to “Axe the Food Tax,” and eliminate the state sales tax on food in Kansas. In a news conference Monday morning Kelly pointed out that Kansas is one of seven states in the nation that fully taxes groceries. She said Kansas’ food sales tax rate is 6.5%, the second-highest rate in the country and under her soon-to-be proposed legislation a Kansas family of 4 will save an average of $500 or more on their grocery bill every year . The plan would eliminate sales tax on food purchased at Kansas grocery stores and farmers’ markets. Kelly said the tax cuts won’t affect the state’s budget “thanks to the fiscally responsible decisions we made before and during the pandemic.”
