Jay Forester
Senior Manager, JD, LLM


As a senior manager in our state and local tax (SALT) practice, I work in all areas of SALT, including income/franchise, sales/use, and gross receipt taxes, but I mainly focus on indirect taxes. I primarily work with clients in the service industry and with our due diligence practice where I help clients navigate the state tax issues that arise in a transaction.

I’m frequently asked to speak with clients, other professionals, and prospects about SALT issues including the sales tax changes due to the Wayfair decision, Colorado’s complex sales tax rules, and the taxability of software. I received my B.S. in accounting from the University of Miami, my J.D. from the University of Tulsa, and my LL.M. in taxation from the University of Denver.
