Nebraska – Proposed Bill Would Put A Sales Tax On Everyday Items

Legislative bill 810 discussed at the capitol on Thursday, bringing a lot of opponents to the stand to air their grievances.

The bill would place a sales tax on items such as sodas, candies and snacks. The revenue would go to the Nebraska health care cash fund.

Bottled drinks such as Snapple or Clamato qualifying for the tax but tea or coffee not. With candy, twizzlers or crunch wouldn’t qualify but a snickers bar would.
