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.

We also have local, on-the-ground expertise across the nation to understand the nuances of compliance in the states where you do business. In addition to offering in-depth knowledge, our agile, industry-oriented teams provide personalized service to each and every client.

We can help you proactively plan for and address your state and local tax responsibilities throughout your business life cycle. Our goal is to help you not just stay in compliance and reduce your tax burden but also to look for key financial opportunities in the process.
