Kansas lawmakers won't agree on the final version of tax-cutting legislation until they return in late April from their annual spring break.

House and Senate negotiators suspended talks Thursday on working out their chambers' differences on bills reducing individual income taxes and eliminating the income tax for some businesses. They also remain divided on cutting the sales tax.

The lead negotiators for both chambers said the talks are
complicated because they want a package that doesn't create budget
problems.

The House and Senate have approved different versions of Gov.
Sam Brownback's proposals for cutting income taxes.

Lawmakers are set to adjourn Friday and return April 25 to wrap
up the year's business.
