Those figures from the Department of Revenue show that tax collections were about $12 million short of expectations last month.
The state's official economic forecast predicted Kansas could collect $251 million in general tax revenues. Instead, it collected about $239 million.
Revenues have been running short of expectations throughout the current fiscal year. Fiscal 2009 ends June 30.
The Legislative Research Department will issue a final report on February revenue collections, possibly later this week. That will be followed by a new deficit projection for the fiscal 2010.
That projected shortfall is now $654 million.
