The 9th Annual New England State & Local Tax Forum took place online and ran through November 17-19, 2020. Due to the unprecedented year we are having due to COVID-19, the Forum’s Joint Boards made the decision to convert the 2020 live conference in Newton to a virtual conference. This year the Forum was held over three consecutive afternoons for 2 hours each day. Each year, the Forum provides the opportunity to learn about new developments in the area of tax law.

3 State & Local Tax Implications from the CARES Act
Posted by Ann Brown on Tue, May 19, 2020 @ 10:53 AM

When the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was first passed in late March to help alleviate financial strains from the Coronavirus pandemic, a lot of the media coverage focused on stimulus checks and business loans. The CARES Act also changed many tax laws to be responsive to taxpayer needs, and reversed some of the more onerous provisions that went into effect in 2017 and 2018 as part of the tax reform law more commonly known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

Tackling Tax Department State & Local Impacts from COVID-19

This dynamic has become more difficult during the pandemic, and it is worthwhile for companies to check in with their tax departments to see how things are progressing, particularly with state and local tax reporting.

Court Ruling Indicates SALT Cap Not Going Anywhere
Posted by Ann Brown on Fri, Oct 4, 2019 @ 02:33 PM

A New York U.S. District Court recently dismissed a case that challenged federal limits on state and local tax deductions. Certain high tax states have long taken issue with the tax reform change that placed a $10,000 “cap” on individual taxpayer deductions for state property taxes and state and local income taxes. The opinion issued in late September deals another hit to the effort to overturn the provision. In June, the IRS put an end to state attempts to bypass the cap through workarounds such as state tax credits. It appears that for the time being, the state and local tax (SALT) cap is here to stay.
