Kansas has long valued a mixed tax revenue stream, that way declines in one area wouldn't be too damaging to the state budget. A new analysis by the Tax Foundation in Washington, D.C., highlighted Kansas' reliance on a "three-legged stool" of property, sales and income taxes. According to fiscal year 2008 data (which, of course, was before the economy collapsed and before the Legislature increased the statewide sales tax this year), Kansas received 31 percent of its revenue from property taxes, 34.5 percent from general and selective sales taxes, 24.8 from individual income taxes, 4.4 percent from corporate income taxes, and 5.3 percent from licenses and other taxes. In comparison, Missouri received less of its money from property taxes and more from income taxes. Oklahoma received much less from property taxes (17.2 percent) but much more from other taxes, such as severance taxes on oil and gas.
