Nebraska: Boundary Changes Could Impact Sales Tax


 Lincoln, Nebraska.

Boundary changes can and often do alter sales tax rates in affected areas. Retailers who find themselves annexed into or out of a municipality may need to start charging a different sales tax rate, as do businesses that sell to customers in affected areas. Automated sales tax software helps sellers stay on top of rate and boundary changes in all states.

Numerous boundary changes are set to take effect in Nebraska in both October 2014 and January 2015.

Cities with municipal boundary changes effective October 1, 2014:

  • Beatrice
  • Fremont
  • Hastings
  • Imperial
  • Kearney
  • Lincoln
  • Norfolk
  • Syracuse
  • Wayne
  • York

Cities with municipal boundary changes effective January 1, 2015:

  • Beatrice
  • Fremont
  • Kearney
  • Lexington
  • Lincoln
  • Omaha
  • Scottsbluff
  • Sidney
  • York

Note that a handful of cities make both lists: Beatrice, Fremont, Kearney, Lincoln and York. Anyone who sells into or near those cities should pay particularly close attention to shifting boundaries.

The boundary changes are explained in detail in ordinance numbers and plats, which are listed on the Nebraska Department of Revenue Municipal Boundary Changes webpage.
