Social Security

LINCOLN - Those who are on Social Security will no longer have their income taxed thanks to new tax bills set to be introduced to Nebraska legislatures

During Wednesday’s press conference, Senator Kathleen Kauth says her legislation would expedite tax relief on Social Security from 60% to 100%, putting us in line with 37 other states.

"We will have $16.7 million in additional relief in the upcoming fiscal year.  This means that seniors will not have to worry as inflation goes up and the economy is struggling, they at least will not have that money taken out of their social security by our state."

With the current tax climate in Nebraska struggling to be competitive with other states, Governor Jim Pillen says it’s vital to modernize our tax code to not only provide Nebraskans with the tax relief they need, but continue to attract and retain people.
