Topeka, KS – September may have been a bad month for the Kansas budget as corporate and income taxes fell below estimate.

Kansas officials say the state's revenues in September came in $67 million below expectations. So far in the fiscal year that began July 1, state revenues are $65 million below the forecasts that formed the basis for the state budget.

Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson issued a statement noting that revenues in August had been slightly higher than expected. Parkinson says the state can manage the overall shortfall through careful management of existing funds.
