(Neb.)-Net Tax Collections Higher Than Expected Throughout State

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/13/2014 09:30 AM
     LINCOLN, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A new report says Nebraska's net tax receipts were 7.1 percent higher than expected in February.
 
     The Nebraska Department of Revenue reported Wednesday that the state had $258 million in receipts. The certified forecast for the month was $241 million.
 
     The revenue was boosted by higher-than-expected individual and corporate income taxes, and miscellaneous taxes. Sales and use taxes were lower than expected for the month.
 
     Net tax receipts for the current fiscal year have totaled $2.5 billion so far, which is 3.4 percent above the state's certified forecast.
 
     The original estimates were approved in April by the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board.
