Microenterprise Tax Credit Advantage
For calendar years beginning 1/1/06 through 12/31/10, a new Nebraska tax credit allows a business with five or fewer employees in an economically distressed community or area to qualify for a 20 percent refundable investment tax credit. The tax credit can be from investment made to increase buildings and depreciable personal property other than vehicles and new employment (increase in compensation over compensation in tax year prior to application).
There is a lifetime limit of the tax credit of $10,000 for a business applicant and related party. More information about the Nebraska Advantage Act (LB 312) and this new tax credit are available at
and should also be available through your tax preparer or accountant.
