As a small business owner, farmer, and someone who works a third job to pay the bills, I can tell you it's no secret that Nebraska has high taxes.
Nebraska has been my family's home for generations, and has provided us with many great opportunities over the years, but our high taxes are crushing my family and our ability to invest in and grow our business, our farm, and our family.
Last year, we had to take out a second mortgage on our house just to pay our income taxes. For us, this isn't a matter of working harder or smarter. Tax rates need to come down now for middle class families like mine if we want Nebraska to continue to be a great place to live.
I appreciate the governor's leadership and advocacy for tax relief. If the state is going to make a difference for people like my family, we need the legislature to act this year.
I urge my fellow Nebraskans to take action. Call and email your senators to tell them to pass LB337.
