Discover strategies to tackle state and local tax burdens and realize opportunities

Helping you navigate in uncertain times

More agile tax models are needed in the face of an evolving landscape including global uncertainties, impacts from the Biden administration, Tax Reform and Wayfair to allow the tax function to effectively provide critical inputs in business decisions. Companies should consider:

  • Effective cash tax management through minimizing taxable income, obtaining available refunds, and reducing required tax payments 

  • Actions to stabilize supply chains while bracing for an unpredictable revenue and profitability mix in key markets

  • Resources needed to meet your ongoing indirect and direct tax compliance requirements, imposed by the various taxing authorities

  • Opportunities focused on becoming more flexible in responding to arising uncertainties

Whether state corporate, partnership, sales tax or unclaimed property, navigating the evolving compliance process has always been challenging. Now, businesses must take what was put into place post-federal Tax Reform and post-Wayfair and adapt it to a rapidly changing situation. Meeting this challenge will require a new vision of how we work and what we are trying to accomplish.

South Dakota and the 2017 federal enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) stand out by changing the landscape for taxpayers across industries. Five years after Wayfair and the TCJA, state tax professionals should be watchful, insightful, and resourceful. Certainly, there are challenges but in meeting these challenges, savings and opportunities may be uncovered.
