Nebraska – Online Sales Tax Bill Among Those Sent To Ricketts For Signature

Nebraska will begin collecting sales tax from online retailers beginning April 1 if Gov. Pete Ricketts signs a bill sent to him Friday.

Senators gave final approval to the bill (LB284) by Omaha Sen. John McCollister. Online sales tax revenue, estimated to be between $30 million and $40 million each year, will go into the state’s general fund.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue has already told online businesses to start collecting sales taxes on orders placed within the state, but there wasn’t a formal law in place.
