Property Taxes are TOO HIGH in Nebraska
We're working to fix that!
Property taxes are too high in Nebraska. Nebraskans now pay the 7th highest property tax rate in the nation, due to a broken tax system that has allowed Nebraska's three major sources of tax revenue to grow further and further out of balance.
Today, property taxes account for roughly 48 percent (almost half) of the total combined collections of property, state sales tax (19%), and state income tax (33%). Property taxes paid by homeowners, businesses and farmers and ranchers are carrying far too much of the load in funding Nebraska's government services, including education.
Nebraska Farm Bureau is focused on a bigger picture of securing broader structural tax reform that would bring Nebraska's tax system back into balance, reducing the overall reliance on property taxes.
