In 1966, the good people of Nebraska had finally had enough of the ‘State Property Tax.’ Led by the Nebraska Farm Bureau, they collected the needed signatures on the initiative petition. They put the question to the people on the November ballot. By a margin of 50.89% to 49.11% the people of Nebraska passed a constitutional amendment that did away with the “State Property Tax.”

At that point in time, the state property tax was nearly the only source of revenue for all forms of local units of government — schools, counties, incorporated villages, towns and cities, NRDs, etc.) in Nebraska, plus the state government.
