LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following a vote by the Legislature to advance LB 44, a bill for the State of Nebraska to enforce online sales tax on out-of-state businesses.
“Tax policy in the Legislature should be driven by a desire to enact sound laws which will pass constitutional muster. LB 44 as advanced by the Legislature remains flawed and contains burdensome regulation and unnecessary red tape on companies doing business in Nebraska. We should be cutting red tape, not creating more of it.”
