Nebraska Sales and Use Tax and Microenterprise Tax Credit Seminars

The Nebraska Department of Revenue holds semi-annual educational seminars around the state to explain complex sales and use tax law in plain language. The seminars also explain the new program under the Nebraska Advantage Act that provides refundable income tax credits specifically for individuals involved in microenterprises. The spring series of seminars is now underway.

At the seminars, small businesses can learn:

  • When you’re supposed to collect sales tax.
  • Who and what is exempt from sales and use tax.
  • What to do when you make a tax-free sale.
  • How to complete your sales and use tax return.
  • When delivery charges are taxable.
  • What use tax is and when you might owe it.
