LINCOLN — Retirees and the elderly, military veterans and farmers will benefit from a package of tax cuts given final approval Thursday by the Nebraska Legislature.
The measures, inspired by a study last year of “modernizing” the state's tax system, will amount to about $70 million in tax breaks during the first full year of implementation, if a planned $25 million increase in the state's property tax credit program is factored in.
