Keeping up with the changes in State and Local Tax (“SALT”) laws has become much more difficult, while states have become increasingly aggressive in pursuing revenue from out-of-state businesses. The Wayfair case makes it easier for states to tax your business even if you have no office or employees there and have never even visited the state.

The SALT professionals at WebsterRogers are well aware of the challenges that businesses face in this diverse and fast-paced tax area. We work with you to proactively identify opportunities for tax-savings and to help protect your business from costly tax exposure risks. Whether your issues are Income Tax, Sales Tax, Property Tax or any of the myriad other taxes imposed at the state and local level, we take pride in our ability to keep clients informed on the cutting edge state and local tax issues that impact their business.

Our clients turn to us for creative tax strategies that help minimize potential risks and allow them to take advantage of all tax-saving opportunities. At WebsterRogers, we have the experience and depth to meet our clients’ needs in all SALT areas. As part of the BDO USA Alliance we also have access to SALT experts with local offices and connections in virtually every US state.
