The corn-fed, solid people of Nebraska may be friendly, but they mean business. And in a state that takes businesses as seriously as Nebraska, you can expect the licenses and permits to be relatively few and straightforward. Nebraska keeps things simple -- clear forms and processes. Less regulation than most West-Coast or Northeastern states. Plain licensing for plains people.
In Nebraska, even lawyers have to make sure their practices are legal. Although a few states and cities allow attorneys to establish practices by virtue of their professional licenses, most require law firms to obtain special licenses. Further, many cities levy special taxes on professional businesses – often using local business licensing as the vehicle for calculating and obtaining revenues.
