LB289, the Revenue Committee’s Tax Reform Bill, has been moved out of committee and will be heard by the entire Legislature. The bill proposes an increase in the State’s Sales tax to 6% beginning July 1, 2019. It increases the doc stamp from $2.25 to $3.25 for each one thousand dollars. If the bill passes as it is written there are many services related to Single Family Homes that will no longer be exempt from sales tax. Language from the bill is:
7 (o) The gross income received for maintenance, painting, and repair
8 services performed with regard to single-family homes, including, but not
9 limited to (i) painting and wall covering services, (ii) poured concrete
10 foundation and structure services, (iii) framing services, (iv) glass and
11 glazing services, (v) roofing services, (vi) siding services, (vii)
12 electrical services, (viii) plumbing, heating, and air conditioning
13 services, (ix) drywall insulation services, (x) flooring services, and
14 (xi) carpentry services. This subdivision (o) shall not apply to fixed
15 price contracts executed prior to the operative date of this section;
16 (p) The gross income received for interior decoration services for single-family homes;
19 20 (r) The gross income received for commercial lawn care, gardening, and landscaping services;
