You may not need the Form 3800N unless you have one of the credits listed below. The easiest way to allow you to e-file would be to go back through the Nebraska state return interview until you come to the Any other credits screen. You may come to the Any other credits screen and find that the 3800N is checked and cannot be unchecked. You should then check all four (including "none of these apply") credits. If the "Form 3800N check box is not checked" on the following page "Nebraska Refundable Incentives Credit screen" make sure there is nothing - not even "0" typed into the box. This should allow you to continue and e-file your return.
According to the Nebraska Department of Revenue, Form 3800N is Nebraska Incentives Computation for Tax Years after 2014. The form is used for the following reasons:
- Identify the incentive program for which each tax credit is claimed;
- Identify the amount of tax credits used from each program;
- Identify the specific project from which the tax credits were received; and • Distinguish between refundable and nonrefundable incentive tax credits
Who Must File: Every taxpayer must complete the Form 3800N, to use the following credits:• Nebraska Advantage Microenterprise credit; • Renewable Energy Tax credit; • Nebraska Advantage Rural Development Act credit; • Nebraska Advantage Research and Development Act credit; • New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC); • Nebraska Historic Tax Credit (NHTC); • Biodiesel Facility credit; • Employment and Investment Growth Act (LB 775) credit; and • Nebraska Advantage Act (LB 312) credit.
