State & Local Tax (SALT)

State & Local Tax Expertise

You received an inquiry from a state asking what your activities are in their jurisdiction. Should you answer it and if so, what should you say? You think you are in compliance but can you be sure? If this leads to an audit, how long will it last and what are they looking for?

Being contacted by a state can be intimidating but having answers to these questions will give you peace of mind. Our State and Local Tax (SALT) Group works to ensure that you comply with each jurisdiction’s requirements for the following types of taxes:
