Income Tax Withholding Forms

Most forms are available in a “fill-in” format, meaning you can view, complete, and print the form from your computer.
You will need the latest version of the free Acrobat Reader.

  • There is no computation, validation, or verification of the information you enter.
  • You are responsible for entering all required information.
  • Instructions may require some information to be handwritten on the printed form (for example, signatures).

Note: The free Acrobat Reader does not allow you to SAVE completed forms electronically.

  • You must fill in the form and print it out in one session.
  • If you experience problems with downloading forms, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version of the Acrobat Reader.
  • You should print 2 copies in order to file one with the Department and keep the other for your records.
For those tax returns where an e-file program exists, only blank copies of the forms can be printed. Look for the e-file logo
[E-file!] to electronically file your form.

Income Tax Withholding Reminders for All Nebraska Employers
December 2015

  • Circular EN. The Department will not be issuing a new Nebraska Circular EN in 2016. The rates and brackets for income tax withholding on wages have not changed since issuance of the 2013 Circular EN.
  • 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.
