State and local tax (SALT)

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 of the US election, 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

Navigating state and local tax compliance and planning for the future 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.

Equally important, companies will need to uncover cash and increase liquidity to meet demand and stay afloat.
