Understand tax law and legislative changes

Budget shortfalls have made states more aggressive in extracting revenue from any source they can find. As a result, states are attempting to raise revenue through creative means in order to increase their tax base. Couple this with rapidly shifting laws and regulations, your business may be facing a larger state and local tax liability than ever before.

BerryDunn SALT advisors can help you gain control of the shifting landscape of state and local tax rules during any stage of a company’s life cycle. Addressing these changes can be labor-intensive and burdensome on company resources. We have the experience and insight to advise our clients who do business across state borders. Our services include:

Transaction planning

Our state and local tax experts can help parties on any side of a potential transaction. In addition to assisting with the due diligence process, we can assist clients who may be planning a future transaction to identify areas of concern and assist with recommending solutions.

Nexus review

The current business environment makes it almost essential to do business across state lines. Our team assists our clients in reviewing the activities that may create a nexus and identifying the jurisdictions where nexus applies. From individual state reviews to more comprehensive studies, we can help businesses of all sizes better assess and manage state and local tax risk and exposure.
Voluntary disclosure and audit defense

We help mitigate the exposure resulting from unfiled and unpaid taxes by assisting clients with entering into voluntary disclosure agreements. This involves addressing all aspects of reporting necessary to come into compliance with a state’s tax laws. Our experts can also assist with audits/controversies and our experience with state and local taxing authorities allows us to effectively manage a company’s risk profile and exposure.
Credits and incentives

We work with clients to examine their business activities and identify statutory and negotiated credit/incentive opportunities at the state and municipal levels. Exploring them early, particularly prior to engaging in new activities or new locations, can be advantageous and provide great benefits for your business.

Sharing our SALT knowledge

At conferences, with webinars, or with our own focused programming, we delve deep into issues relevant to companies. We serve up new ways to help you address multi-state tax issues, and help you find tax savings in spite of the complexity.
