State and Local Tax

Advisory, compliance, and reporting for state and local tax requirements

States across the country are becoming increasingly creative when it comes to finding new revenue sources. This can mean new taxation and compliance requirements. Businesses throughout the State of Kansas and beyond face the array of ever-changing tax laws, jurisdictional boundaries, pending and enacted legislation, and court decisions impacting their business if they wish to sell both within and outside the state.

Among the challenges and issues businesses encounter when dealing with SALT are:

  • Discovering and capturing all available state and local tax incentives to finance new projects, expand operations, and maximize after-tax earnings
  • Identifying practical tax-saving strategies and corporate structures to comply with state tax requirements and reduce state tax burdens
  • Reducing property taxes using property assessment analysis, accelerating depreciation, tracking assets, and unbundling of equipment purchases
  • Implementing best practices for sales tax automation
  • Helping businesses that are remote sellers with nexus compliance strategies and tactics after the Wayfair decision
  • Establishing processes to monitor and mitigate unclaimed property risks and assist with unclaimed property reporting.
  • Identifying and reclaiming tax overpayments
