Protect against risk and position for growth

Complex regulations and volatility in state government pose challenges to businesses every day — whether you’re trying to get ahead by discovering opportunities for tax savings or trying to keep up by deciphering dense tax code. Our state and local tax (SALT) experts do the heavy lifting to keep you informed of how changes may impact your taxes and uncover hidden opportunities.

We continuously monitor the evolution of SALT rules in all 50 states by staying on top of legislative, regulatory, and precedent-setting developments so you and your staff don’t have to. Our technical tax expertise, combined with broad and deep industry knowledge, means we bring you effective SALT planning strategies to ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and minimize your tax obligations.

Whether determining sales tax economic nexus compliance and software solutions; voluntary disclosure, audit, and controversy representation; or unitary analysis to apportionment and allocation review, our team can help you feel confident in your state and local tax positions.
