Surgent's Essential Multistate Tax Update
Monday, January 21, 2019 8:00am - 11:30am
With the largest overhaul of the federal income tax code in 30 years and the repeal of the physical presence nexus standards for sales tax in the Wayfair case the states are working fast and furious to overhaul their tax laws. As some states scramble to fund their budgets, they continue to look for additional forms of revenue. You can’t afford to ignore recent changes in state and local tax. Even tax-savvy businesses and their advisers often neglect to consider the consequences of state and local taxes. Multistate taxation is more complex and demanding than ever before. In addition to having their own unique tax laws, states have been more focused on enforcement. Plan to attend this fast-paced program that covers developing topics in state taxation, ranging from individuals to pass-through entities to corporate taxpayers. This course will focus on issues of small and middle-market companies and offer guidance for minimizing tax liability and negotiating the treacherous waters of compliance.
