Non-profit health clinics will have to wait to stop paying sales taxes

Non-profit health clinics in Nebraska have been paying sales taxes to the state and Senator Gaylon Hadley of Kearney says the state should keep the tax for now because of the tough economy now, but put an end to it three years down the road.  Appropriations Chair Senator Lavon Heidemann of Elk Creek says if this is good tax policy we should just stop the taxing of the clinics now.
“If something is good policy, if there is a bill in the legislature we should start to do it right away, and if it’s not good policy at the time, I don’t think the bill should be reintroduced when the appropriate time is.”
The State would have to find an additional two to three million dollars in tax revenue once the tax is stopped.
