The State of Nebraska should be "supporting legal contractors and companies" not using the excuse it's a Federal issue. If the NE Dept of Revenue doesn't want to do its' job........people will replace those jobs wil those who will!

I'd like to know why trucking companies would be exempt. From my experience, many are cheating Uncle Sam and the state's revenue coffers. Someone in Lincoln needs to review the IRS rules as to contractors........if you're not allowed to haul freight for anyone other than the company you're contracted with, you're driving that company's equipment, you're NOT an independent but an employee.
