Bellevue has the honor of being the second-oldest settlement in the state and the longest-continuously operating city in the state. It has one of its boundaries by the Missouri River and occupies about 16 square miles of land.
Settled in the 1830s, and incorporated in 1855, the city, whose name means “beautiful view” in French, is now a suburb of Omaha with a 2010 population of 50,137.
At the time of the 2010 census, Bellevue was a relatively young city, with a median age of about 34. Bellevue resides in Sarpy County and is part of the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metropolitan Area.
At one time, it served as the location of the state’s government, though that honor has moved to Lincoln. Bellevue has been the birthplace of, or home to a large number of significant people. These include legislators, sports players, a state senator, an actress, members of the Armed Forces, and even a competitive eating champion.
Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in Bellevue
In general, a 5.5% sales tax applies to all purchases within the state of Nebraska, though local areas can impose additional sales taxes of up to 2%. However, the state passed Legislative Bill 867, which exempts both bullion and currency from the state sales tax.
This means that any form of legal tender, as well as items whose value resides in their precious metal content, are not subject to the state sales tax.
