        The Nebraska Auditor of Public Accounts provides PDF files of budget forms, when available.
        Keep in mind that forms may not be available until late in the year.
What is the purpose of the necessary cash reserve? Could we not use that money to lower taxes?
        The necessary cash reserve is money the county actually uses to pay bills. A county budget year begins July 1 and runs to June 30. Taxes for the year become due January 1 (six months after the budget year begins). The first half of property taxes becomes delinquent May 1 (two months before the year ends) and the second half becomes delinquent September 1 (two months after the year ends).
        Many, if not most, people pay their property taxes in two payments, in April and August. Some counties have lowered their reserves only to find themselves going to the bank, borrowing money, and paying interest so they could make payroll and pay current bills.
