Where Nebraska General Fund Dollars Come From

The State General Fund is financed primarily by sales and income taxes.  It also consists of excise taxes (including cigarette, alcoholic beverage, and pari-mutuel taxes), and other miscellaneous sources (including financial institutions tax, insurance premiums tax, and organization and qualification fees).  Property taxes are administered at the local level and are not included in State General Fund revenue.
