Boundary changes and sales tax rates

Boundary changes often impact sales tax rates. Cities must notify the Nebraska Department of Revenue whenever there is a boundary change and furnish a map of annexed or de-annexed areas, a list of all retailers (with location and mailing address) in the annexed or de-annexed area, and information indicating the number of residents in impacted areas. The department will then notify all retailers of the effective date for their new sales and use tax rate.

Boundary changes are one reason it's difficult to find accurate sales tax rates. Geolocation determines precise rates, down to the rooftop. Try it here.
