LINCOLN — The Nebraska Department of Revenue (Department) announced it is now accepting 2010 Nebraska Individual Income Tax Returns through the Department’s NebFile program.

“The Department’s website offers free e-file and e-pay options and detailed information about everything having to do with state taxes,” said Doug Ewald, Tax Commissioner.

Highlights of the upcoming 2010 tax filing season include:

  • Final Timely Filing Date is Monday, April 18 – Since Friday, April 15, is a legal holiday in Washington, DC (Emancipation Day), the IRS has announced that taxpayers nationwide have until the following business day, Monday, April 18, to timely file returns and pay taxes. Nebraska will also accept as timely, income tax returns and payments e-filed or postmarked on or before April 18, 2011.

  • Limited Mailing of Tax Booklets – The Department no longer mass mails tax booklets to all taxpayers. The Nebraska Individual Income Tax booklet is available at www.revenue.nebraska.gov. The Form 1040NS has been eliminated and all taxpayers must use the Form 1040N. Taxpayers who are unable to obtain a tax booklet can call the Department at (800) 742-7474 to request one.

  • File and Pay Use Tax on Your State Income Tax Form – Individual income tax filers can now report and pay use tax on line 37 of their 2010 Nebraska Individual Income Tax Return, Form 1040N. Many Nebraskans may not be aware that they owe use tax. You owe use tax if you purchase taxable items (books, music, clothes, etc.) and are not charged sales tax. For example, if you bought books from an Internet or catalog seller and were not charged sales tax, you owe use tax on the purchase price and shipping charges. For more details on reporting use tax, go to www.revenue.nebraska.gov.

  • Paid Tax Preparer Mandate – Any person or business paid to prepare and file more than 100 2010 Nebraska Individual Income Tax Returns must e-file these returns in 2011. For more information on this e-file mandate, see the FAQs on the Department's website.
