The eastern Nebraska town of Ashland is increasing its sales-and-use tax rate to 1.5 percent, up from the current 1 percent.
Nebraska Tax Commissioner Doug Ewald says the increase will take
effect on Oct. 1.
Retailers making taxable sales in a city with a local sales tax must collect both state and local taxes. Local sales tax receipts are reported to the Nebraska Department of Revenue along with state receipts.
Ashland will become one of 86 Nebraska cities with a 1.5 percent
sales tax when its new rate takes effect.
