TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas says it collected $8.2 million more in taxes than anticipated in August.

The state Department of Revenue reported Friday that Kansas took in more than $460 million in tax revenues when its official projection was $452 million. The surplus was 1.8 percent. It’s similar to what happened in July. Since the state’s current budget year began July 1, its total tax collections of $914 million were about $16 million ahead of expectations. That’s also a 1.8 percent surplus over two months. Tax collections are running more than 7 percent ahead of the previous fiscal year’s collections.
