Nebraska Tax Commissioner Grants Specific Relief for Adversely Impacted Nebraskans 

The IRS recently granted individual and corporate income tax relief to certain taxpayers impacted by the disaster under Treasury Regulation section 7508A. The official release from the IRS may be found here. Individuals who reside or have a business in Butler, Cass, Colfax, Dodge, Douglas, Nemaha, Sarpy, Saunders, and Washington counties may qualify for tax relief. 

For taxpayers affected by the natural disaster whose business or primary residential location is outside the nine counties identified in the IRS release dated March 22, 2019 or was not subject to mandatory or voluntary evacuation, the Tax Commissioner may grant penalty or interest relief depending on your individual circumstances. Please complete and file a Request for Abatement of Penalty, Form 21, or Request for Abatement of Interest, Form 21A, and explain your hardship to request this relief. Press Release

Keeping Workers Safe During Flood Cleanup

Workers responding to the cleanup from floods in Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri may be exposed to serious hazards including electrical, fallen trees and debris, mold, and carbon monoxide. OSHA reminds employers that worker safety is a priority, and the agency has resources available to protect workers from hazards associated with flood response operations. 
  • Generators – Use gas and diesel-powered generators outdoors to prevent exposure to carbon monoxide – a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas.
  • Electrical – Keep a safe distance from downed or damaged power lines. Repairs must be performed by trained electrical utility workers.
  • Downed Trees – Wear protective gloves, and foot, eye, hearing, head, and fall protection when using chainsaws and chippers to clear downed trees.
  • Chemical/Biological Hazards – Wash hands with soap and clean water, and wear protective clothing, goggles, gloves, and boots to avoid contamination.
For more information on common hazards after a flood, visit OSHA’s Flood Preparedness and Response page.

Employers can also take advantage of OSHA's On-Site Consultation Program, which offers no-cost and confidential occupational safety and health services to small- and medium-sized businesses. Consultation services are separate from enforcement, and do not result in penalties or citations. Contact the local OSHA area office for assistance.
