Nebraska: Federal EITC(Earned Income Tax Credits) Rates and Thresholds in 2024

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a significant tax credit in the United States, designed primarily to benefit working individuals and families with low to moderate income. As a refundable credit, the EITC not only reduces the amount of tax owed but can also result in a refund if the credit exceeds the taxpayer's total tax liability. This makes the EITC a powerful tool for reducing poverty, incentivizing work, and providing financial support to those who need it most. The credit amount varies based on the taxpayer's income, marital status, and number of qualifying children, with the intention of providing greater assistance to families with children.

The EITC rates and thresholds are adjusted annually to reflect changes in the economy and cost of living. For the tax year 2024, these adjustments ensure that the credit remains aligned with the current economic conditions, providing targeted support to eligible taxpayers. Understanding the latest EITC rates and thresholds is crucial for taxpayers who wish to maximize their potential credit and accurately plan their finances. The EITC can have a significant impact on a family's annual budget, offering relief and financial stability to millions of Americans each year including those in Nebraska.

Note: you must be between the ages of 25 and 65 to claim EITC in 2024 unless you have 1 or more children.

Nebraska: Federal FICA Rates in 2024

FICA, which stands for the Federal Insurance Contributions Act, is a fundamental component of the United States payroll tax system. It is dedicated to funding two major social welfare programs: Social Security and Medicare. Social Security provides benefits for retirees, people with disabilities, and survivors of deceased workers, while Medicare offers health insurance for individuals aged 65 and over, as well as for certain younger people with disabilities. FICA taxes are collected from both employees and employers to finance these crucial social safety net programs, playing a pivotal role in ensuring financial support and healthcare coverage for millions of Americans.

The mechanism of FICA taxation involves a dual contribution system where both the employer and the employee contribute a set percentage of the employee's income towards these programs. The tax is applied to wages, salaries, and other compensation within certain thresholds, which are adjusted periodically. The distinct components of FICA, namely Social Security and Medicare, each have specific rates and caps that determine the amount of tax levied. This system of contributions not only ensures the ongoing viability of these programs but also directly ties the benefits an individual receives in retirement or during periods of disability to their work history and contributions over their working life. As such, FICA represents a critical element of the United States' approach to social welfare, providing foundational financial security and healthcare benefits that many Americans rely on. The Federal FICA Rates for 2024 are displayed below.

Nebraska: Federal Retirement Plan Thresholds in 2024

Federal retirement plans in the United States, such as 401(k), 403(b), SARSEP, and 457 plans, along with SIMPLE plans, offer valuable opportunities for individuals to save for their post-working years while enjoying certain tax benefits. These plans are designed to encourage long-term savings by providing tax advantages. Contributions made to these plans are typically pre-tax, meaning they are deducted from the employee's gross income before taxes are calculated. This reduces the taxable income for the year, potentially leading to lower tax liabilities. Additionally, the funds in these retirement accounts grow tax-deferred, meaning that taxes on investment gains are not paid until the money is withdrawn during retirement, ideally at a lower tax rate.

The tax benefits associated with these retirement plans make them an integral part of retirement planning for many Americans. Each plan has specific contribution limits, with higher limits generally available to individuals aged 50 and over, known as "catch-up" contributions. These higher limits allow older workers to save more as they approach retirement. It's important to understand the latest contribution thresholds for these plans, as they are periodically adjusted to account for inflation and changes in the economy. By maximizing their contributions, individuals can not only enhance their financial security in retirement but also optimize their current tax situation.

Federal Retirement Plan Types and Thresholds in 2024
Retirment Plan typeStandardOver 50 Catch Up
401(k), 403(b), SARSEP, and 457 plans$ 22,500.00$ 7,500.00
