Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation President Steve Nelson released this statement following the Legislature’s passage of LB 1107, the Property Tax Relief Bill.
“Today is a good day for Nebraska taxpayers. We greatly appreciate the Legislature’s work to find compromise and deliver on providing property tax relief with the passage of LB 1107. A heart-felt thank you to those state senators who supported this critical legislation. This bill takes a major step forward to provide significant, meaningful, and much needed property tax relief for Nebraskans. It is important Nebraskans know the relief provided by LB 1107 reflects the largest investment by the Legislature in targeted property tax relief since the body first established the state’s Property Tax Credit Fund in 2007. While we must continue to look for long-term solutions to alleviate pressure on property taxes, this is clearly positive progress in delivering relief. We look forward to continuing to work with our elected leaders toward those ends and helping deliver more wins for Nebraska taxpayers.”
