Nebraska – State Sen. Steve Erdman Pushes to Overhaul Nebraska Tax System

Sen. Steve Erdman’s wants to get rid of the income tax, property tax, sales tax, and inheritance tax. Some Nebraska lawmakers like his alternative because it would make taxes more affordable for rural Nebraskans.

Three Nebraska lawmakers, led by Erdman, said it’s time to revamp our tax system and turn to a consumption tax.

A consumption tax would come in around 10.5% but Erdman said it wouldn’t feel that heavy. He said relief would come in the form of a pre-bate. Essentially every Nebraska resident would get a check of state tax dollars that you could spend however you please each month.
