Tony Fulton, Tax Commissioner

Nebraska Tax Commissioner Adds Locations Eligible
for Tax Relief for Adversely Impacted Nebraskans

Nota Bene: This News Release updates and supersedes the April 3, 2019 News Release

April 12, 2019 (LINCOLN, NEB.) — Nebraska Tax Commissioner Tony Fulton has added locations eligible for flood victim relief. An automatic waiver of penalties and interest for late filed returns or payments of impacted individual, corporate, fiduciary income tax, partnership, and S corporations due on or after March 1, 2019 is granted if the return is filed and the tax is paid by July 31, 2019. The relief previously announced is expanded to include additional areas identified by NEMA as most likely to have experienced significant flooding. This relief will be automatically granted solely to taxpayers whose business or home location is in one of the zip codes identified by NEMA.

The zip code list will be updated if NEMA identifies more areas in Nebraska that were most likely to have experienced significant flooding due to this natural disaster.

For taxpayers affected by the natural disaster whose businesses or homes are outside the areas identified by NEMA, the Tax Commissioner may grant penalty or interest relief depending on your individual circumstances. Please complete and mail a Request for Abatement of Penalty, Form 21, or Request for Abatement of Interest, Form 21A, with an explanation of how you were impacted by the natural disaster.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue (DOR) recognizes the difficulties that these catastrophic natural disasters present with regard to tax responsibilities and wants to help those adversely impacted, including those outside of the identified areas. DOR will work with businesses and individuals regarding any tax returns and taxes due. For further information, please call 800‑742‑7474 (NE and IA) or 402-471-5729, or visit DOR’s website.

This News Release supersedes the April 3, 2019 news release and all other guidance documents concerning the individual, corporate, and fiduciary income taxes and partnership and S corporation returns. The March 20, 2019 news release regarding other state taxes due on or after March 15, 2019 through April 14, 2019 is still in effect.
