NebFile for Individuals

The NebFile for Individuals e-file system is NOW OPEN for filing most 2023 Nebraska resident individual income tax returns.

NebFile allows Nebraska resident taxpayers to file their state income tax returns FREE over the Internet. Eligibility requirements and capabilities are listed below and on NebFile help screens. NebFile allows you to file a Form 1040N, Schedule I, and Schedule II with some limitations.

Use NebFile to e-file your Nebraska resident income tax return for free and easily claim your property tax credit (if applicable).  

Nebraska Driver's License or State ID for e-filing

  • The Nebraska Department of Revenue, along with many other state revenue agencies, is requesting additional information for electronically filed individual income tax returns. This is an effort to combat stolen‑identity tax fraud, and to protect you and your tax refund.
  • We ask that you provide the requested Nebraska driver’s license or state‑issued ID card information when completing your tax return. Providing this information is voluntary. We will not reject your return if you do not provide the requested driver’s license or state‑issued ID information. However, providing this information may help us process your tax return more quickly.
