LINCOLN, NEB. – “Property tax relief remains the highest of priorities for Nebraskans. Today’s announcement that state tax receipts for September outpaced revenue projections is good news. With total net tax receipts for the current fiscal year exceeding projections there is a great opportunity for the Legislature to put those excess revenues to work in lowering Nebraskan’s property tax bills. We look forward to working with Gov. Ricketts and our state’s elected officials to ensure those dollars are used for property tax relief.”

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 58,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
