The state's new fiscal year is here, and that means a flurry of new taxes and fees.

Some are caused by a $252 million package of tax increases that legislators approved, and others by a plan for financing highway projects.

The sales tax increases from 4.9 percent to 5.3 percent and the cigarette tax jumps by 46 cents a pack, to 70 cents.

Motor fuels taxes increase by two cents a gallon, to 23 cents for gasoline and 25 cents for diesel.

Corporations will pay twice as much in fees to do business in Kansas, to a maximum of $5,000.

The state is also reinstating a tax on property inherited by nephews, nieces and non-relatives and is eliminating a sales tax exemption for custom computer software purchases.
