Nebraska sales tax rate changes
- Sales Tax Rate Changes
- Dec 18, 2017 | Gail Cole
Typically there aren’t many changes to local sales and use tax rates in Nebraska. While this makes sales and use tax compliance simpler in some respects, it also means changes can catch businesses off guard. For rate changes do occur, and when they do, companies must incorporate them into point-of-sale systems.
Although no rate changes take effect Jan. 1, 2018, boundary changes are scheduled to go into effect on that date. Boundary changes can impact sales and use tax rates in affected areas.
In addition, there were boundary and rate changes in the fourth quarter of 2017, and there will be boundary and rate changes in the second quarter of 2018.
