Nebraska exempts half-baked pizza


 Take-n-bake pizza is exempt from Nebraska sales tax as of October 1, 2016

Beginning October 1, 2016, half-baked pizzas are exempt from Nebraska sales and use tax. The exemption doesn’t apply to an undercooked pizza purchased from a local pizzeria.

Legislative Bill 776, which created the exemption, specifically excludes “food that ordinarily requires additional cooking to finish the product to its desired final condition” from the definition of taxable prepared food. If that description fits take-n-bake pizza to a T, it’s because it was created to exempt take-n-bake pizzas.

For a fairly complete list of Nebraska’s taxable and exempt food, food ingredients, and dietary supplements see this information guide.

To facilitate sales and use tax compliance for all products in all states, manage sales tax in the cloud.
