The total amount on line 1, Schedule I must be equal to the amount reported on line 8b of Federal Form 1040 or Form 1040A. This includes state and local bond (municipal bonds) income from all states. Although this income is exempt from federal tax, it is taxable income in Nebraska. Expenses related to this income that have not been previously deducted can be deducted from line 1 only if you itemized deductions on your federal return. Interest income from a regulated investment company (including certain mutual funds) attributable to state and local obligations must also be included on line 1b.
