A motor vehicle tax is imposed on motor vehicles registered for operation upon the highways of the state, except:

Motor vehicles owned and used exclusively by an organization which qualifies for tax exemption may apply for exemption to the Douglas County Treasurer's Office. For a newly acquired motor vehicle, an Application for Exemption (Form 457) must be made within thirty (30) days after the purchase date. A Renewal Application (Form 457) shall be made annually the first day of the last month of the current registration period.

The procedure for the Tax Exemption Application (Form 457) is as follows:

  • Complete the section identifying the current title owner, name and address
  • Complete the section identifying the current officers or board of directors for the organization
  • Complete the section describing the motor vehicle
  • Provide a summary statement of use in the "Nature of Use" section
  • Sign the application
  • Return all four copies to:

        Douglas County Treasurer
        Motor Vehicle Division Room H-02
        1819 Farnam Street
        Omaha, NE 68183

It is important to return this application promptly to ensure ample time for processing and presentation to the Board of Equalization for approval prior to the expiration of your current registration. Failure to apply prior to the expiration of your current registration shall constitute a waiver of the exemption.

Please Note: The application can be picked up at any branch location or you may phone (402) 444-7103 to have an application mailed to you. The yellow copy of the application (Form 457) will be required at time of registration.
