LINCOLN — Over the last few weeks, the state of Nebraska has been sending out postcards that show what people in different parts of the state receive in property tax credit
However, it’s led to some confusion among residents.
Some counties say they’ve been receiving calls from people thinking they owe money. In reality, the postcards are intended to reflect the credit people are receiving from the state’s real property tax relief fund.
As stated on the postcard, these are not an exemption from property taxes. Instead, it’s money directly applied to your tax statement to reduce the amount of taxes you must pay.
Counties are encouraging people to read the postcards carefully to understand their own property tax situation.
The state sent out more than 700,000 postcards this year and legislative leaders say it will be a priority in the upcoming session.
