Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has signed legislation that implements a number of significant changes to corporate and personal income taxes. The legislation collapses the current three-bracket structure for personal income taxes (3.5%, 6.25%, and 6.45%) into a two-bracket system using rates of 3.0% and 4.9%. The bill also exempts certain non-wage business income (income reported by limited liability corporations and sole proprietorships) currently subject to personal income tax. Additionally, the legislation also repeals a number of tax credits currently available against personal income tax; increases the standard deduction amount for single head-of-household filers to $9,000 (currently, $4,500) and for married taxpayers filing jointly to $9,000 (currently, $6,000); and eliminates the subtraction modification for certain long-term care insurance expenditures and the income tax deduction for expensing enacted in 2011. (H.B. 2117, Laws 2012, effective July 1, 2012.)
