CHANGES IN CITY SALES AND USE TAX RATES

LINCOLN – Tax Commissioner Doug Ewald announced today, that effective July 1, 2012, Clearwater will start a new city sales and use tax at the rate of 1.5% and Shelton will terminate its 1% city sales and use tax.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue (Department) has updated its website to provide notification of these changes. Written notification is no longer mailed to all sales tax permitholders.

Local sales tax receipts are reported to the Department along with state sales 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 taxes, including instructions for online filing of the sales and use tax return, tax rates, forms, information guides, revenue rulings, regulations, frequently asked questions, and a schedule of the Department’s free educational seminars, please visit www.revenue.nebraska.gov.
