If you need to register your business in Nebraska, there are a few steps that you need to go through to complete the process. The first step is to identify your business structure and your business name. You have to secure all the necessary documents to file the application for your chosen business structure.
The Secretary of State office is where you must go to if you need to register your business name. Once that is completed, go to the IRS office to obtain your tax identification number. You will be using your tax number to transact all financial accounts for your business and for paying your taxes.
You must also register the business itself with the Nebraska Department of Revenue. This is essential if you are engaged in business activities such as selling, renting or leasing, or providing any taxable services. You must fill out Form 20 on the department website.
Next is to check with the Nebraska Department of Labor for all the needed insurance you must purchase for your business. This will vary depending on the type of your business and the entailing risks. It is also a legal requirement if you wish to operate your business in Nebraska.
The Lewis and Clark exploration in 1804 opened the doors for Nebraska's rapid growth. What was once a Native American-Indian settlement became a major participant in trade and agriculture after the first systematic exploration. After the state's admission to the union in 1867, and despite the grasshopper plague and economic depression, the state's population grew from 120,000 to a million in 1890.
Today, there are a total of 93 counties, 446 townships, and 531 municipalities in the state of Nebraska. There are also 575 public school districts and 1,146 special districts in the state; all covered in housing, fire protection, irrigation, and sewage treatment services.
Voters elect their board of commissioners or supervisors to administer at the county level. Most municipalities are overseen by the mayor (or city manager) and council. Villages on the other hand, elect trustees in the governing boards.See the main Nebraska Page for county links.
