Effective January 1, 2002, paper returns were eliminated and EDI (electronic data interchange) became the only filing method available. On January 1, 2005, the Form 73 was modified to include reporting of environmental fees (PRF), aircraft fuel tax liabilities, and compressed fuels thereby eliminating the Forms 82 - Petroleum Release Remedial Action Fee Return and the Form 85 - Nebraska Aircraft Fuels Tax Return. Also on January 1, 2005, a new EDI return was introduced exclusively for ethanol and biodiesel producers, the Form 83 - Nebraska Ethanol and Biodiesel Producer's Return and supporting schedules.
We do maintain the ability for certain returns to be filed "online." This is limited to the Forms 74, 80, and 86. A registration process is required to obtain permission to file these "online" forms.
Pre-written software is available from commercial software providers listed under the "Electronic Filing" section of our website. Those filers electing to develop their own filing software will find mapping instructions located under the "EDI Implementation Guide" located on this same section of our website.
The following "sample" returns and schedules are provided to illustrate how the various liabilities are computed. Only EDI returns may be submitted.
