Dem Govs Get it Done: Gov. Laura Kelly Signs Bipartisan Tax Cuts Into Law, Including “Substantial Property Tax Cut”

Latest News

As Gov. Laura Kelly’s fiscal management and strong economic policies have resulted in the state’s largest budget surplus in decades, she’s fighting to lower costs and deliver tax relief.

Yesterday, Gov. Kelly “signed a multimillion dollar bipartisan tax cut bill, highlighted by a substantial property tax cut for homeowners,” according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.

The big win for Kansans also includes tax cuts for teachers buying school supplies, credit for community and technical college, and rural opportunity zones, among others.

“Our fiscal responsibility has put Kansas back on track,” said Gov. Kelly. “We’ve been able to fully fund our schools, fix our roads and bridges, balance the budget, and cut property taxes, providing relief for Kansans.

The tax cut is just the latest action from Gov. Kelly to save Kansans money. Gov. Kelly also has a plan to axe the Kansas grocery tax, which is estimated to save the average family of four $500 per year. She’s also been a champion for economic development: starting over 600 new economic development projects, securing a record-breaking $8.6 billion in new business dollars invested in the state and creating and retaining over 42,000 new jobs since taking office.

“Just like she’s done every day since taking office, Gov. Kelly is delivering for Kansans where they need it most,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Thanks to Gov. Kelly, Kansas’ economy is growing, schools are fully funded and working families are keeping more money in their pockets.”
