Call for Action Alert: Tell the Kansas Legislature to Stop Hidden Tax Increases on Kansas Homeowners

March 29, 2019 in Government Affairs

The Kansas Association of
REALTORS® (KAR) has launched a
Call for Action email
urge members of the Kansas Legislature to stop a
$30 million hidden state
income tax increase on Kansas homeowners
. If this effort is not successful, thousands of
Kansas homeowners will be forced to pay higher state income taxes this year, since
they will be unable to claim the mortgage interest and property tax deductions
on their state income tax returns.

According to a recent
statewide poll conducted for the Kansas Association of REALTORS®, 72 percent of
Kansas voters support the proposal to preserve the ability of Kansas homeowners
to itemize on their state income taxes. Nearly two-thirds of voters (64

Call for Action email

this harmful tax increase. Now is the time to help protect the housing market
in the Kansas City region by
