State and Local Tax Planning and Solutions

State and Local tax laws can sometimes be complex and confusing.  To make things more difficult, they are always changing, as evidenced by the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair.  They pose specific challenges to businesses and impact all elements of business operations, including C and S corporations, partnerships and sole proprietors.

We have a full team of dedicated SALT experts ready to provide you with planning and solutions to your issues and questions whether you are conducting business in one, several or all 50 states.
