PIERCE, NEB. – Madison and Pierce County Farm Bureaus are sponsoring a “Road to Property Tax Reform” forum, Monday, April 10 at 12:00 p.m. at the White House in Pierce. The event is open to the public and lunch will be provided.

Bruce Rieker, vice president of governmental relations for Nebraska Farm Bureau, will present the property tax landscape in Nebraska and answer any questions.

“Whether you are a homeowner, a business owner, or a farmer or rancher, it’s important for everyone that is concerned about property taxes to learn what they can do to make a real difference. You don’t have to be a farmer or rancher to come. This event is open to everyone,” Aaron Fehringer, president of Madison County Farm Bureau said March 31.

Property taxes account for roughly 48 percent, almost half, of the total combined collections of property taxes, state sales taxes, and state income taxes. “We hope to see folks Monday, April 10 at 12:00 p.m. at the White House in Pierce to learn more about the ‘Road to Property Tax Reform,’” Fehringer said.
