Amazon costs Nebraska at least $18 million in state and local taxes

“In 2014, Amazon alone had over a quarter billion dollars in retail sales in Nebraska,” said Jim Otto of the Nebraska Retail Federation. “That’s at least $18 million in state and local taxes that could have support benefitted our City and State.  And it equates to the loss of over 180 average sized stores and over 1,600 retail jobs in our State.”
