Letters to the editor on state income taxes and Kellogg sales tax

Nearly every day I speak to fellow Kansans and ask them to tell me the reasons they vote Republican in state elections. After listening intently, I point out that Kansas residents who make their living as “W-2” employees are subject to paying Kansas state income tax, whereas “pass-through” income – income derived from a person’s ownership of a business organized as a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company or Subchapter S corporation – is now exempt from state income tax.
