The Kansas Department of Revenue says state sales tax receipts were $6.4 million more than expected for August, or 3.5 percent.
The state has collected $23.6 million more in sales tax receipts than it had by August of last year. The report suggests the economy may be recovering.
"While we see signs that the Kansas economy is becoming stronger, the numbers this month show why we cannot stop working to grow economic development and create more private sector jobs," said Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan.
However, revenue receipts were down $14.9 million, or 3.3 percent, from what was expected for August this year. The state attributes it to flat individual income tax receipts and payments on state debt through bond payments.
