Good news, Nebraska farmers and ranchers!
As of Oct. 1, 2014, the state's agricultural producers will not have to pay a state sales tax on repairs and replacement parts for agricultural machinery and equipment. The elimination of sales tax on ag repairs and replacement parts came about when legislation passed during the 2014 session of the Nebraska Unicameral.
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman signed the bill into law in April.
According to the Nebraska Farm Bureau, Nebraska had been one of only eight states that charged a state sales tax on repair and replacement parts on agricultural machinery and equipment.
