State & Local

Broad Experience, Local Expertise

There are over 9,000 state and local jurisdictions that impose taxes on businesses, and their rules are in constant flux. Keeping abreast of them is a major challenge, yet failing to do so can significantly affect your cash flow and ability to compete. Local enforcement activities have also increased dramatically, adding to the complexity of conducting a multistate business. For companies in transition–expanding into new jurisdictions, downsizing their operations, or relocating—state and local taxes are an increasingly important issue.
