Nebraska Individual Income Tax Provisions

Nebraska State uses the most common filing system for taxing residents on their earned income. There are three to choose from: joint, combined, or a mixture of the two. Nebraska opts for the joint system, which adds the incomes of both spouses in a married couple together and taxes it as one amount. This adheres to the federal government's idea of taxing the family as a single economic entity.

Nebraska's tax base begins with the federal adjusted gross income, and there a few differences between the state and federal laws that taxpayers should be aware of.

Exemptions

Some sources of income aren't included in taxation for residents, including:

  • Interest from U.S. government obligations
  • Extraordinary dividends from qualified corporations

Most other sources of income, including pension and social security benefits follow the federal laws regarding taxation.

Deductions

The state standard deduction is the same as the federal, and there are a few more deductions which residents can take to save money:

  • Qualified contributions to the Nebraska College Savings Program
  • Contributions to, and earnings from, a Nebraska long-term care savings plan
  • Special capital gains accrued through the sale of stocks by state residents who are employed by qualified corporations doing business in-state.

State and local income taxes are not deductible, and neither are federal income taxes.
