Heineman Backs Two Money Saving Measures for Farmers

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Dave Heineman has voiced support for a bill that could save Nebraska farmers some money and has continued to place support behind another cost saving measure for farmland owners.

The bill would exempt agricultural repair and replacement parts from Nebraska's sales tax.

The governor spoke out once again in support of lowering the taxable land value of farmland from 75 percent to 65 percent. Heineman believes the state can afford the tax relief measures.

He said Nebraskans are being overtaxed right now and that he is determined to get tax relief for Nebraskans.

The tax exemption bill for agricultural repairs was introduced by state Sen. Annette Dubas of Fullerton and so far has advanced through a first-round vote that took place last week.
