Kansas general fund revenue of $224 million was $11.5 million less than expected in February, the Department of Revenue said last week, putting collections $6.3 million below projections so far in fiscal 2011.

Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said collections in the first eight months of fiscal 2011 were $3.4 billion, which is $343.3 million more than the same period of fiscal 2010. Jordan said most of the increase is the result of the 1% increase in the state sales tax rate in July 2010. Sales and income taxes account for $1.9 billion of fiscal 2011 revenue.
