Sen. Rob Clements Column – Inheritance Taxes

November 2, 2020

Between legislative sessions, my office has been working on a study that I introduced last session, LR 415, to reexamine Nebraska’s inheritance tax (death tax) system.  I would like to take this opportunity to discuss this with you.

On Tuesday, November 10, the Legislature’s Revenue Committee will have a public hearing on interim study LR 415, to examine Nebraska’s inheritance tax (death tax) as we look to improve the tax structure in the state.  It will be held at the Capitol, in Room 1525, at 1:30 p.m. November 10.  The public is welcome to testify in person or may testify by submitting written testimony to the Revenue Committee prior to the hearing via letter or email.  Regarding emailed testimony, please send to llinehan@leg.ne.gov, with LR 415 in the subject line, state your name in the body, and ask that your “testimony be added to the permanent record”.

The purpose of the study is to collect information from the counties that collect inheritance taxes and from the public to better understand whether to change it, replace it, or repeal it.  Currently, only five other states have some form of inheritance tax, which puts Nebraska as an outlier among our peers.  Our state ranks among the highest when comparing the rates of the other states.  Nebraska taxes heirs at one percent for children, 13 percent for relatives, and 18 percent for all others, which is the highest in the country.

I believe that we can do better as a state in this area.  We need to continue to give people more reasons to stay in our state and not leave.  This is why I am planning to bring a bill next session to move us forward, taking the information and feedback from this study to either change, replace, or repeal the inheritance tax.

On another note, the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board met October 29th and raised the revenue forecast by $285 million for the current fiscal year FY2020-21, $118 million for FY2021-22, and $307 million for FY2022-23.  This is good news for Nebraskans who are still struggling to recover from the economic downturn due to the pandemic.  Improving revenues means our economy is recovering and people are getting back to work.

Feel free to contact me or my staff for assistance, information, or questions on issues.

You may reach me at: Senator Robert Clements, State Capitol Rm 812, Lincoln, NE 68509,    Phone 402­-471­2613, Email: rclements@leg.ne.gov.




News Release


October 29, 2020


Autumn Sky Burns, Coordinator, Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands, (402) 276-2976



Tobacco Compliance among State Tobacco Law Changes

La Vista, NE – Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) has completed tobacco compliance checks in La Vista and Plattsmouth between July and October 2020.  Out of 24 retailers checked, none of La Vista retailers sold to a minor, while one location in Plattsmouth, DC’s Waterhole, did sell tobacco products to underage youth.

“We are encouraged to continually see the majority of our tobacco retailers taking their responsibility to check identification when selling tobacco products. We consider tobacco retailers our partners in preventing illegal sales of nicotine products to the kids in our community,” stated Autumn Sky Burns, Sarpy County Coordinator for T.E.A.M.

Nebraska State Senator Tom Briese introduced legislative bill (LB) 1064 that passed unanimously at final vote took effect October 1st.  The law makes it illegal to sell cigarettes, cigars, electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), alternative nicotine products and tobacco products to anyone under 21 years of age. It also raised the legal age for use of those products to age 21. 

Electronic smoking device retail outlets are affected through this law.  Until January 1, 2022, they shall not allow a person under twenty-one years of age to enter the store but may allow an employee who is under twenty-one years of age to work in the store.  On and after January 1, 2022, an electronic smoking device retail outlet shall not allow a person under twenty-one years of age to enter the store and shall not allow an employee who is under twenty-one years of age to work in the store.

NE State Senator Sue Crawford’s amendment to LB1064, allows individuals between ages 15 and 20 to assist law enforcement in compliance checks of tobacco vendors with written consent of a parent or legal guardian. Youth volunteers use their own identification and make no attempt to appear older than the legal purchase age.

Other relevant tobacco law changes include LB840, which adds electronic smoking devices to the definition of smoking in the Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act, which prohibits their use in a place of employment or public place with the exception of “electronic smoking device retail outlets” starting November 14th.

LB840, introduced by Senator Mike Quick and cosponsored by Senators Crawford, Hansen, Pansing Brooks, Walz and Kolowski passed final reading with 33 votes. Sarpy Senators Arch, Blood, & Crawford voted yes whille Sarpy Senator La Grone and Cass Senator Clements were present but did not vote.

T.E.A.M. is a coalition of health-related organizations, educational and community groups, and individuals that meet monthly to educate and advocate for healthy tobacco-free communities. T.E.A.M. has collaborated with the La Vista Police Department to check tobacco license holders on a regular basis since 2006. For more information, including technical assistance with complying with the new law call 402-593-3022, email Info@TeamTobaccoFree.org or visit www.TeamTobaccoFree.org.


Funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services/Tobacco Free Nebraska Program as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.
