STATE & LOCAL TAX
States continue to face budget deficits, and state and local taxing authorities are mindful of the shortfall. At the same time, individual and business taxpayers face an ever increasing number of taxes and laws. Preparing for and reacting to a changing tax climate and enforcement landscape is vital to mitigate risk and can also present meaningful opportunities for professionals to drive value. With the recent Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc., which uproots decades of constitutional nexus standards, this is now especially true for tax departments.
