Nebraska Sales Tax Holiday Proposed


 A time without sales tax.

Nearly 20 states offered a temporary tax-free period in 2015. Now Nebraska lawmakers must decide whether or not to create an annual sales tax holiday for Nebraska.

LB 974, introduced by Senator Rick Kolowski (D), would create an annual sales tax holiday for the following items:

  • Clothing with a sales price of $100 or less
  • Computers and computer-related accessories with a sales price of $750 or less
  • School supplies with a sales price of $100 or less

The proposed dates for the holiday are from 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday of August through 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday.

Sales tax holidays can create compliance nightmares for sellers, especially those selling eligible items in multiple states. Sales tax software (SaaS) facilitates sales and use tax compliance for businesses in all states. Learn more.
