Governor Ricketts Call Tax Relief Proposal Largest Tax Increase

Governor Ricketts calls the revenue committee’s tax relief proposal the largest tax increase on working Nebraskans in the history of our state.

Governor Ricketts says a revenue committee proposal strips taxpayers of relief thru his property tax credit relief fund proposal.
It would raise the state’s sales tax by 14 percent and slaps new taxes on key services including heating, air conditioning and plumbing.

The proposal would reduce property taxes by boosting state aid for K-12 schools, raising the state sales tax and eliminating tax exemptions. Members of the Revenue Committee in announcing the proposal….say it’s still subject to change.
