Taxation and revenues will continue to be a major focus of debate, post adjournment, in the interim, and when senators reconvene in 2019.  Below is information on the revenues generated by Nebraska’s various taxes, per the Economic Forecasting Board at its February meeting.  Keep in mind that revenues vary month to month.  For example, April’s numbers showed sales taxes for the month down by 1.2 percent, individual income taxes down 3.6 percent, corporate taxes up 28.2 percent, and the take from miscellaneous taxes up by 35.4 percent.  This happens month by month.  The better focus is longer term—the fiscal year.  Year to date, revenues are 1.7 percent above projections.
