Nebraska Cattle Group Encouraged Committee Looking At Taxes

Nebraska Cattle Group Encouraged Committee Looking At Taxes

One of the priorities for the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association is getting state lawmakers to pass property tax relief. Cattlemen’s Legislative Director Pete McClymont says the first step in that process is this week’s meeting of the State’s Tax Modernization Committee. He’s encouraged one of the committee members has been given the go ahead to look at how the property tax system can be adjusted.

Recent statistics show that 44 percent of the state’s revenues are funded by property taxes, 29 percent by income taxes and 27 percent by sales taxes. McClymont says that proves property taxes need adjusting in order to provide a fairer system.

McClymont says legislators have their work cut out for them and will be working on it all summer and into the fall.
