State & Local Tax

State and Local Tax

In state and local tax regulation, the only consistency is inconsistency--and the penalties for noncompliance can be steep.

In state and local tax regulation, the only consistency is inconsistency.

Keep pace with constant change

Individual state and local governments still face challenges that encourage them to seek new revenue streams. As a result, they are increasingly aggressive in enforcing compliance and assessing penalties for not complying with state and local tax regulations. 

Yet, state tax regulations are inconsistent and judicial decisions in a constant state of change. So, how can you keep up?
