If adjusted gross income is $169,550 or more ($84,775 if married, filing separately), NE taxpayers should use the state’s Additional Tax Rate Schedule to calculate added tax liability.

NE Sales Tax:

The state has a 5.5% sales tax rate. Some cities collect a use and city sales tax, with a maximum amount of 1.5%. Dakota County is the only NE county with a sales tax. Its tax rate is 0.5%, making its total county and state sales tax rate 6%.

NE Personal Property Tax:

All real property located within the state is taxable unless specifically exempted by statute. Personal property is taxed and valued based on the depreciated cost within reasonable class lives. This is determined by the legislature.

The state offers a homestead exemption for personal property owners. They must submit an Application or Certification of Status, Form 458, to their county tax assessor in order to receive the tax exemption.

Odd Tax Fact:

Energy drinks sold in grocery stores are usually subjected to sales tax, but it depends on their labels. If the drink has a “Supplement Facts” label, it is subject to tax as a dietary supplement. Drinks with the “Nutrition Facts” facts label are exempt from the sales tax and are considered food products.

All energy drinks sold through a vending machine are subject to tax, regardless of the label on the product.
