 The optimistic sales outlook for Nebraska gives hope to the government and politicians for bigger real estate tax credits

Nebraska raised $ 4.939 billion for the year ended June 30, 2020. The new forecasts call for the state to end the current fiscal year at $ 5.49 billion. However, the total is projected to decrease to $ 5.085 billion in the next year and to $ 5.368 billion in the year ended June 30, 2023.

State Senator Anna Wishart from Lincoln, vice chair of the budget committee, welcomed the new forecast, saying it will allow the state to rebuild the state’s cash reserve. The reserve, also known as the state’s “Rainy Day Fund,” had fallen to $ 333.5 million in 2019 after several years of slowing government revenues.

Jessica Shelburn, state director for Americans for Prosperity, said lawmakers’ priority should be to ensure the state has a healthy cash reserve and to reform the state’s tax laws to allow for a stronger economic comeback.

Despite the pandemic, all members of the forecasting committee were optimistic about the economy in their national territories. Richard McGinnis of Kearney said the hospitality industry is struggling but is more than offset by other sectors. He also noted that even though the state’s unemployment rate is low, fewer people are working now than it was before the pandemic.
