Jun 10, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A new report says Nebraska's net tax receipts in May came in lower than projected.

The Department of Revenue said Tuesday that net tax receipts for the month totaled $333 million, which is nearly 5 percent below the state's certified forecast. The forecast said the state would net an estimated $349 million.

According to the report, individual income and sales-and-use tax revenue came in lower than expected. Corporate income and miscellaneous tax revenues were higher than projected.

Net receipts for Nebraska's current fiscal year are still nearly 2 percent higher than the forecast.
