Nebraska State Senator Mike Gloor has proposed a tax shift for that state in order to lower property taxes. Although it does not lower property taxes as much as the NH Tax Shift Plan, it is a step in the right direction.
Senator Gloor proposes raising Nebraska’s cigarette tax $1.50 a pack. That would raise $90 million which he says would go towards property tax relief. The increase would set their cigarette tax at $2.14 per pack. New Hampshire’s tax is $1.78.
