But Martin Dickinson, a University of Kansas law professor who specializes in tax issues, said some provisions are flawed and unclear. For example, he said, the provision meant to exempt partners in a business from paying income taxes could still result in them facing taxes when income is distributed to them, not what lawmakers intended.

"I'd say there might be a half-dozen points that might be in controversy," Dickinson, a registered Democrat who's taught at the university since 1967, said during the critics' news conference. "There are parts of the bill which the Legislature will definitely need to address."
