Military retirees in Nebraska can celebrate progress on a tax exemption two decades in the making.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has signed a bill that grants a 50% exemption on state income tax for military retirees. The exemption marks progress on efforts that began in 2000 with MOAA’s Heartland of America Chapter and the Nebraska Veterans Coalition.
“There is a long history of Nebraska trying to get an exemption,” said Brig. Gen. Paul Cohen, USAF (Ret), who helped work on the legislation for the Heartland of America Chapter.
