‘Meaningful tax relief’ tops Gov. Heineman’s wish list
Gov. Dave Heineman defined “meaningful” as “hundreds of millions of dollars” in tax cuts phased in over several years. Though he did not offer specifics, Heineman said any plan should include a cut in state income and corporate income taxes and a reduction in agriculture land values.

LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman is again thinking big when it comes to tax relief, calling on the Nebraska Legislature to pass a multiyear program of tax cuts that would rival the $425 million package of tax reductions signed into law in 2007.
“In 2014 we need meaningful tax relief for middle-class families, farmers, ranchers and small-business owners,” Heineman said in an interview Friday.
