A Kansas City Star article about conflicting information on deductions in the state's newest tax bill quoted Martin Dickinson, professor of law.

Cooper wrote:

The conflict surprised lawmakers on the House tax committee and leaves some doubt about the fate of the deductions — although the Legislature clearly intended to keep them in place.

“Obviously, it’s not certain because we have this inconsistency in the statute,” said Martin Dickinson, a tax specialist at the University of Kansas who has studied the tax bill passed by the Legislature.
