Nebraska is fourth on Forbes’ 2018 Best States for Business list, coming in fourth for regulatory environment, sixth for quality of life, and seventh for business costs. US News & World Report also gives the state high marks, noting its outstanding infrastructure and education system. CNBC agrees, giving the state an A+ for the cost of doing business, an A in education, a B+ in cost of living, and Bs in business friendliness, quality of life, and workforce. With scores this good on all the major lists, Nebraska must be doing something right.
The benefits of doing business in Nebraska include low-cost unemployment insurance, low sales tax, business support programs, and low energy costs (thanks to the state-run power system). The cost savings, the fact that it’s a nice place to live, and the strong workforce make it an obvious top pick for anyone looking to start or relocate a business.
