LINCOLN, NEB. – “Early this morning, the Senate took another major step forward to provide Nebraska’s farm and ranch families with meaningful federal tax relief. From possible lower income taxes, expanded Section 179 small businesses expensing, to the doubling of estate tax exemptions, this bill warrants our support. We want to sincerely think Senators Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse for their work in helping to move this important legislation forward.”

“As the House and Senate now work to iron out their legislative differences, it is our hope that the momentum continues behind this effort and that Congress along with the President can offer farmers, ranchers, small business owners, and individuals, well deserved tax code reform.”

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.
