The special tax status of 90 acres of Sarpy County woodland owned by former U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson — the same property that became a campaign issue in the 2006 election — was briefly revoked, then reinstated after Nelson protested the decision.
Since 2009, the Platte River land has been taxed as greenbelt, a designation that allows land near developed areas to be valued based on its agricultural use rather than its market value.
