FIND OUT WHAT NEBRASKANS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR TAX SYSTEM:
A 21st CENTURY TAX CODE FOR NEBRASKA
Nebraskans are overtaxed, and it’s causing people to lose opportunities and even leave our state.
Nebraskans pay 52 percent more in personal income tax, 36 percent more in corporate income tax, and 24 percent more in property tax than the average of taxpayers in Texas, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, and Iowa. To put that into perspective, Nebraska’s state and local governments collect over $1,000 more per person than the average of these other states, which are the top states gaining income and population from relocating Nebraskans.
Nebraska’s current tax system was created 50 years ago in a very different economy — it places high tax rates on working, investing, and planning for the future in Nebraska. Meanwhile, our state tax code is riddled with loopholes that make those tax rates even higher for everyone.
It’s time for an upgrade that reforms Nebraska’s tax system for the 21st century.
