Nebraska Governor considers tax reform proposals
By Tyler King
OMAHA, Nebraska: Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman is in the process of considering Nebraska's options for tax reform in order to make the state more competitive for job creation. During a wide-ranged interview, Heineman was asked about reports that he had taken a look at ending Nebraska's income tax in order to build a more business-friendly tax environment. Heineman told reporters, "Every option I can think of is on the table now. I do not want to go there now." He continued in saying that Nebraska has made progress in moving up the ladder of competitive states as measured by the Tax Foundation, but that Nebraska needs to get to the Top 20, and eventually the Top 10.
