Nebraska Homestead Exemption Changes for Tax Year 2014

The Nebraska Department of Revenue announces that the income eligibility amounts for applicants of the homestead exemption program for tax year 2014 have changed. (See Neb. Rev. Stat. §§ 77-3507, 77-3508, and 77-3509, as amended by LB 986). Please review the new income tables and apply for the homestead exemption if you are now eligible. Claimants who have already filed 2014 homestead exemption applications and income statements do not
need to refile or take any additional action. The new income amounts will be used by the Department of Revenue to determine the percentage of exemption for 2014.
