State and Local Tax

The ability of each state and local jurisdiction to create its own taxing structure ultimately adds yet another critical layer of complexity to tax planning and compliance for businesses. As states more aggressively seek tax dollars in an effort to expand their taxable base, their laws have become more complex and far-reaching. We help clients see state and local taxation as not simply a compliance burden, but also as a way to identify significant savings opportunities when done right.

Our state and local tax specialists have years of experience providing tax planning and compliance services — including advising on nexus issues in multiple states and municipalities, and, in particular, on the impact of the 2018 Supreme Court decision in South Dakota vs. Wayfair. Our experience also encompasses working closely with our Transaction Group on merger and acquisition deals to evaluate seller and buyer risk, as well as facilitate optimal transaction structuring.
