Changes in Local Sales and Use Tax Rates

LINCOLN – Tax Commissioner Kim Conroy announced today, that effective on October 1, 2014, the following rate changes will be made to local sales and use tax.

  • Fairfield will impose a new local sales and use tax of 1%.

  • Atkinson will increase its local sales and use tax to 1.5%.

  • Hickman will impose a new local sales and use tax of 1.5%.

  • La Vista will increase its local sales and use tax to 2%.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue (Department) has updated its website to provide notification of these changes. Under “Specific Tax Info” click on “Sales and Use Tax” for these notifications.

Local sales and use tax receipts are reported to the Department along with state sales and use tax receipts, and are distributed to the communities where they were collected. If sales tax is not collected on a taxable sale by the retailer at the time of purchase, the buyer is responsible for paying the appropriate use tax directly to the Department.

For detailed information about sales and use tax, including instructions for online filing of the sales and use tax return, rates, forms, information guides, revenue rulings, and frequently asked questions, please visit revenue.nebraska.gov.
