Record Number of Tax Incentive Agreements Reported


Nebraska has seen a big jump in tax incentive agreements.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue signed more agreements with companies last year than it did in 2010 and 2011 combined.

The Nebraska Tax Incentives 2012 report to the legislature shows that 58 companies signed agreements in 2012, nearly four times the total of 15 in 2011.

State tax commissioner Doug Ewald said the 58 agreements set an annual record for agreements signed since the Nebraska Advantage Act took effect in 2006.
