Apr 18, 2019

(Lincoln, NE)  --  Nebraska lawmakers are revealing a plan to lower property taxes.  The proposal, which was unveiled yesterday, calls for increasing state sales taxes by three-fourths of a cent and cigarette taxes by 36-cents per pack to one dollar.  Officials say the proposal would result in a 20-percent decrease in local property taxes, which would provide about 540-million-dollars per year in property tax relief.
