Things to Note About Nebraska’s State Income Tax

Unlike most states, Nebraska citizens are required to pay taxes on income earned inside the state of Nebraska and on income earned outside of the state.

Therefore, people who live in Omaha that work across the river in Iowa would still need to pay Nebraska state taxes. There are tax credits for taxes paid towards other states.
