Buying a Car

When buying a car in Nebraska, there are some tasks you need to fulfill in order for the transaction to be considered valid. The first question you should ask yourself is if you are buying it in Nebraska or from somewhere else. If you are buying a car in Nebraska, then no import tax applies to the vehicle. If a Nebraska resident purchases a car that is valued below that same exact car in Nebraska, then you will have to pay a four percent tax on what that car's value is in Nebraska. Because transportation costs are a main factor in Nebraska's consumer price index, which is higher than the national average, importing goods is expensive. Thus, Nebraska must assess a tax to maintain their state budget.
