Income Tax Withholding Reminders for All Nebraska Employers
December 2015

  • Circular EN. The Department is issuing a new Nebraska Circular EN for 2017. You should continue to use this 2013 Circular EN through December 31, 2016.
  • Form W-3N Due Date. State copies of 2015 Forms W-2, W-2G, 1099-MISC, 1099-R, and the Nebraska Reconciliation of Income Tax Withheld, Form W-3N, are due February 1, 2016.
  • E-file Requirement. Forms W-2, W-2G, 1099-MISC, and 1099-R for tax year 2015 must be e-filed when the employer has over 50 forms to report.
  • Special Income Tax Withholding Rate. The “special income tax withholding rate” remains 1.5%. Employers using the wage bracket tables may continue to use the shaded/nonshaded areas of the bracket tables to determine if special income tax withholding procedures apply.
  • Military Spouses. Spouses of active duty military servicemembers whose income is not subject to Nebraska tax may give a Nebraska Nonresident Employee Certificate for Allocation of Income Tax Withholding, Form 9N, to their employers to exempt their wages from Nebraska income tax withholding.

Instead of mailing your 2015 forms, e-file them.

In addition, there are other income tax withholding requirements.
