INCREASE IN RAVENNA’S SALES AND USE TAX RATE
LINCOLN — Tax Commissioner Doug Ewald announced today, that effective April 1, 2012, Ravenna will increase its current sales and use tax rate from 1% to 1.5%.
The Nebraska Department of Revenue (Department) has updated its website to provide notification of this change. Written notification is no longer mailed to all sales tax permitholders.
Retailers making taxable sales in a city, or the one county, with a local sales tax must collect BOTH the state and local sales taxes. Local sales tax receipts are reported to the Department along with state sales tax receipts, and are distributed to the communities where they were collected. If sales tax is not collected on a taxable sale by the retailer at the time of purchase, the buyer is responsible for paying the appropriate use tax directly to the Department.
Local sales and use tax rates can be set at 0.5%, 1%, or 1.5%.
On April 1, 2012:
- One city and one county will have a 0.5% sales and use tax rate;
- 106 cities will have a 1% sales and use tax rate; and
- 7 cities will have a 1.5% sales and use tax rate.
For detailed information about sales and use taxes, including instructions for online filing of the sales and use tax return, tax rates, forms, information guides, revenue rulings, regulations, frequently asked questions, and a schedule of the Department’s free educational seminars, please visit www.revenue.ne.gov.
