Internet shoppers reminded of tax


LINCOLN (AP) -- Holiday shoppers making purchases over the Internet are being reminded that they might owe a Nebraska "consumer's use" tax.

State Tax Commissioner Doug Ewald says when items are purchased from Internet retailers and delivered to Nebraska, the sales price of the items are subject to the tax.

That also includes delivery and handling charges.

If the retailer does not collect sales tax for Nebraska, then the buyer becomes responsible for self-reporting the consumer's use tax at the same rate as the sales tax.

The tax is reported and paid on the Nebraska and Individual Consumer's Use Tax Return Form 3, which is due on Jan. 25, 2010 for purchases made in 2009.

This is news??? That's the way it works in every state in the nation (except those that don't have a sales tax).
