  • About This Answer

    Our income tax calculator calculates your federal, state and local taxes based on several key inputs: your household income, location, filing status and number of personal exemptions. Also, we separately calculate the federal income taxes you will owe in the 2020 - 2021 filing season based on the Trump Tax Plan.

    How Income Taxes Are Calculated

    • First, we calculate your adjusted gross income (AGI) by taking your total household income and reducing it by certain items such as contributions to your 401(k).
    • Next, from AGI we subtract exemptions and deductions (either itemized or standard) to get your taxable income. Exemptions can be claimed for each taxpayer as well as dependents such as one’s spouse or children.
    • Based on your filing status, your taxable income is then applied to the the tax brackets to calculate your federal income taxes owed for the year.
    • Your location will determine whether you owe local and / or state taxes.

Taxes in Nebraska

Nebraska State Tax Quick Facts

  • Income tax: 2.46% - 6.84%
  • Sales tax: 5.50% - 8%
  • Property tax: 1.61% average effective rate
  • Gas tax: 27.70 cents per gallon of regular gasoline and diesel

In 2012, Nebraska cut income tax rates across the board and adjusted its tax brackets in an effort to make the system more equitable. Today, Nebraska’s income tax rates range from 2.46% to 6.84%, with a number of deductions and credits that lower the overall tax burden for many taxpayers. On the other hand, Nebraska’s average effective property tax rate of 1.61% is one of the highest in the U.S.

A financial advisor in Nebraska can help you understand how taxes fit into your overall financial goals. Financial advisors can also help with investing and financial planning - including retirement, homeownership, insurance and more - to make sure you are preparing for the future.

Nebraska Income Taxes

Nebraska enacted its income tax in 1967 as a new source of revenue. The current form of the tax is similar to the federal income tax, with marginal tax rates charged based on income tax brackets. The table below shows income taxes for all filing statuses in Nebraska.

The amount and types of income that are taxed in Nebraska are similar to those taxed federally. To determine the income with which to calculate your tax bill in Nebraska, you begin with your federal adjusted gross income (AGI). This can be found on IRS Form 1040. Subtractions from federal AGI can be made in certain special circumstances, most notably if you have made contributions to a Nebraska College Savings Plan. Those contributions can be removed from AGI up to a total of $10,000 per year ($5,000 if married filing separately).

From there you subtract either the Nebraska standard deduction or your total federal itemized deductions (if you itemized deductions on your federal return). If claiming itemized deductions in Nebraska, you must subtract the amount of the deduction for state and local income taxes if you claimed it.

The standard deduction in Nebraska is $7,100 for single filers and $14,200 for joint filers. You can claim a larger standard deduction if you or your spouse is over 65 years old or blind.

Once you have your Nebraska taxable income, you can calculate income taxes using the rates in the table above. In some cases, after you have determined your initial income tax bill, you may be able to subtract some tax credits to lower the amount you pay, or to increase your refund.

Nebraska Tax Credits

A tax credit reduces your total income tax bill by the amount of the credit and can result in significant tax savings. With some, called refundable credits, you will receive a payment if the credit reduces your tax liability below zero. As an example, if your liability is $100 and you are eligible for a $200 refundable credit, you will end up receiving $100 from the government. You will not get any money if a nonrefundable credit pushes your liability below zero.

There are numerous credits in Nebraska, both refundable and nonrefundable. They include the following:

  • Nebraska Personal Exemption Credit – equal to $137 per exemption claimed on tax return (non-refundable) for tax year 2021
  • Nebraska Child/Dependent Care Credit – available to taxpayers with AGI less than $29,000, equal to between 100% and 30% of the federal credit (non-refundable) for tax year 2021
  • Nebraska Earned Income Credit – equal to 10% of the federal credit (refundable)
  • Credit for Tax Paid to Another State – available to taxpayers who paid income taxes in another state (non-refundable)
  • Credit for the Elderly or Disabled – equal to the federal credit (non-refundable)
  • Beginning Farmer Credit – available to taxpayers deemed eligible by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (refundable)

Nebraska Capital Gains Tax

Long- and short-term capital gains are included as regular income on your Nebraska income tax return. That means they are taxed at the rates listed above (2.46% - 6.84%), depending on your total taxable income.

Nebraska Sales Tax

The state sales tax in Nebraska is 5.50%. In addition to that, many cities collect their own sales taxes with rates up to 2.50%. The table below shows the total state and city sales tax rates for the largest cities in Nebraska.

Nebraska Inheritance Tax

The Nebraska inheritance tax varies depending on the relation of the inheritor to the decedent. The tax identifies three categories of potential inheritance recipients: immediate relatives, remote relatives and others.

Immediate relatives include siblings, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren and other direct descendants. Inheritors in this category receive an exemption of $40,000, so no tax is applied to the first $40,000 in inheritance. Above that amount, the tax for this category is 1%.

Remote relatives include nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and any spouses or descendants thereof. Inheritors in this category receive an exemption of $15,000, above which the tax rate is 13%.

Any person receiving an inheritance who is not in one of the first two categories falls into the third category. For these inheritors, the exemption is $10,000 and the tax rate on all inheritance above that amount is 18%.
