This is a reminder that e-file with direct deposit is the quickest and easiest way to get your individual income tax refund. E-file is fast, easy to use, secure, and more accurate than paper filing. If you go to a tax preparer, be sure the preparer e-files both your federal and state returns.



    This is a fee-based convenient way to file both your federal and state income tax returns in one transmission to the IRS. 


    NebFile allows most Nebraskans to e-file their Nebraska individual income tax return for FREE. NebFile is for state returns only and there are no limitations on income. You must complete your federal return before beginning NebFile.


“Free File” allows free e-file for your federal return only and for returns with federal adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less. If you use Free File, you may be charged a fee to file your state return.  You can avoid this fee by using the NebFile program to file your Nebraska return for FREE after using this program for your federal return.
