Tax Modernization Committee Deadline Looms

LINCOLN -  Months of study by the Nebraska State Legislature’s Tax Modernization Committee have led to the conclusion that more study is needed.   Committee Chairman, Senator Galen Hadley of Kearney, says the committee would likely submit broad outlines for the legislature to consider, rather than concrete proposals for the upcoming session.  The committee has focused on recommending ways to lighten the property tax load on Nebraskans while leaving the state income tax rates at present levels.
