State Income Tax
Sorry to burst your bubble. Nebraska DOES have a state income tax.
I created a specific Nebraska income tax page to answer some common questions.
The sales tax rate in Omaha is 7%.
Sale tax rates vary from city to city. Here are rates for cities around Omaha.
- Papillion – 7.5%
- Bellevue – 7%
- Bennington – 7%
- Gretna – 7%
If you’re heading out to eat, you should know about Omaha’s restaurant tax.
Restaurants, bars, movie theaters, arenas, etc. are subject to an extra 2.5% tax. That brings the total tax to 9.5% (2.5% restaurant tax + 7% Omaha sales tax).
The tax only applies to the City of Omaha, not other cities around Omaha. Lincoln and Grand Island are currently the only other cities in Nebraska with a restaurant tax.
