MARCH 29, 2019 (LINCOLN, NEB.) - The Nebraska Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division, reminds owners of personal property that the Nebraska Personal Property Return and Schedule must be filed on or before May 1 with the county assessor where the personal property is located. If you have property at more than one location, contact the county assessor to determine the tax district.
The Personal Property Tax Relief Act provides an exemption of the first $10,000 of value of taxable tangible personal property in each tax district in which a personal property return is required to be filed by the taxpayer. Failure to timely report taxable tangible personal property on the return will result in a forfeiture of this exemption
for untimely reported personal property.
A Nebraska Personal Property Return and Schedule must be filed for all depreciable tangible personal property
If depreciable tangible personal property subject to taxation is not reported by May 1, it is subject to the following penalties:
If value is added after May 1, but on or before June 30
If value is added on or after July 1
10% of the tax due on the value added
25% of the tax due on the value added
The payment or nonpayment of sales tax does not impact the property tax status of tangible personal property.
