State & Local Taxes

For most businesses, state and local taxes are a big part of their overall tax liability. You can count on us to stay current on the latest tax laws and alert you to tax-saving opportunities and potential pitfalls.

Our deep knowledge and resources will help you manage your tax exposure. This includes planning for and addressing your state and local tax responsibilities so they also contribute to your cash flow and bottom line.

  • Business income and franchise tax. States are aggressive in enforcing their tax laws. We can help you keep up with the complex, changing rules. Our expertise with issues such as non-business income, sales sourcing, apportionment rules, and nexus can create opportunities for clients who plan their business transactions thoughtfully.
  • State sales and use tax. Almost all states impose this tax, but many companies have difficulty navigating the ever-shifting rules to ensure taxes are properly collected or assessed. As a result, some businesses may overlook deductions or refund opportunities. We can help you with:
    • Reverse tax audits to capture overpaid taxes
    • Complex compliance issues
    • Tax-savings strategies
  • Property tax. Taking charge of your property tax assessments can offer major savings. We’ll help you stay in compliance—and ensure your assessments are fairly valued and reports are filed on time.
  • Credits and incentives. States and local jurisdictions offer many tax credits and incentives to attract businesses. Our professionals can help you capitalize on these opportunities.
  • State voluntary disclosure. When an exposure arises for current or prior period taxes, almost all states allow the taxpayer to come forward and pay the tax under a voluntary disclosure agreement. We have in-depth experience serving as the required third party to represent the taxpayer, helping to ensure penalties and interest are waived where allowed.
