  • Louisiana - A state appeals court, in a case concerning nexus for franchise tax purposes, considered whether a foreign corporation owning an interest in a pass-through entity doing business in Louisiana was subject to the state’s corporation franchise tax, and remanded the case for a determination as to whether the taxpayer’s principal place of business was in Louisiana.

  • Missouri - The Administrative Hearing Commission concluded that computer hardware used by a credit card company qualifies for the manufacturing exemption from Missouri’s sales and use tax.
  • Oregon - The state tax court concluded that Oregon could tax an apportioned share of gain from the sale of stock held by an out-of-state taxpayer because the stock served an operational function (as opposed to an investment function) in the taxpayer’s television and radio station business.
