State and Local Tax

  • Because of their complexity and interaction, state and local taxes are a key consideration in business operations, and can often drive the decision-making process. Faced with chronic budget deficits, state and local governments have become more aggressive, enacting new taxes, regulations and surcharges, and increasing audit activity. The result is an ever-increasing state and local tax burden. Whether it is income/franchise tax, sales/use tax, or another state and local tax issue, EisnerAmper’s State and Local Tax (SALT) professionals can help you manage this burden through proactive planning, exposure identification and remediation. Our wide range of SALT expertise includes income/franchise tax; sales/use tax, credits and incentives; and transactional planning and evaluation. By gaining an in-depth knowledge of your business, we provide tailored solutions suited to your needs; not “one size fits all” fixes.
