Nebraska state tax collections lower than expected in May

Lincoln, Neb. — A new report says Nebraska state tax collections came in lower than expected in May.

The Department of Revenue reported Friday that the state received net taxes of $392 million, which is more than 4 percent below the state’s official certified forecast.

The report says net sales-and-use and individual income tax receipts were lower than expected, while net corporate and miscellaneous taxes came in higher.

Nebraska is still more than 1 percent above projections for the current fiscal year, which ends on June 30.

The projections were set by the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board in October.

Lower-than-expected revenue forced lawmakers to tighten the state budget earlier this year.
