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.
They are high (unless you are coming from a state with equally high property taxes).
Visit this page dedicated to Omaha area property taxes – why they are so high, what you get, and more.
The sales tax rate in Omaha is 7%.
Sale tax rates vary from city to city. Here are rates for cities around Omaha.
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.
