Tax breaks for businesses owned by non-Native Americans would tackle poverty on reservations
LINCOLN — A Dollar General store that opened a decade ago in Winnebago ushered in a new era of business on the northeast Nebraska reservation.
Before the store opened, no business owned by a non-Native American had located there in some 30 years, said businessman Lance Morgan, who leads the tribe’s economic development arm. Some such businesses had left the reservation for economic reasons. Others went because of confusion over taxes.
