Sound Off: When do the new tax rates Gov. Sam Brownback recently signed off on go into effect?

When folks file their 2013 taxes in 2014, they will see the effect of the new rates, according to Jeannine Koranda, public information officer for the Kansas Department of Revenue. The state sales tax will decrease from 6.3 cents per dollar to 5.7 cents per dollar on July 1, 2013.

In other words, state income tax rates drop January 1, 2013. You might consider adjusting your withholding then instead of waiting until 2014.

Even if you don't change your number of exemptions, if you're a W-2 (normal) employee, your withholding will change with your first paycheck in 2013.

You can look up the state withholding guide. It's a little arcane. But, currently, if you're listed as married with 2 deductions (on your K-4), making $35,000 a year, and paid every two weeks, your current KS withholding is $33 per paycheck. Under the new law, the withholding will be $25. Don't spend it all in one place.

Same income unmarried with a kid? ~$50 a paycheck to $41.
