Heineman calls for tax cuts|
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman is calling for new property and income tax cuts when the Legislature convenes next year. His comments came in the midst of a legislative review of Nebraska's tax system, which has included public hearings in Scottsbluff, North Platte and Norfolk. Additional hearings are scheduled in Lincoln and Omaha. State government has no direct control over property taxes, which are set at the local level. But Heineman says the state could use Nebraska's property tax credit fund to reduce what property owners have to pay.
