Nebraska: Sales Tax Change for ATVs on Hold

 Lincoln, Nebraska.

Nebraska Senator Galen Hadley sponsored legislation that would have required retailers of both ATVs and UTVs (utility type vehicles) to collect Nebraska sales tax at the time of sale. Under current law, county treasurers collect sales tax when the vehicles are registered.

LB 498 was approved and sent to Governor Pete Ricketts (R) to be signed into law. Then Sen. Hadley asked the governor to veto it, and Gov. Ricketts did.

According to the senator, “the bill erroneously was written to apply to ATVs and UTVs sold before the bill’s operative date.” He plans to correct the language and reintroduce the measure next year.
