The New England State and Local Tax (SALT) Forum provides an annual update on significant state and local tax developments from across the nation with a particular focus on New England. Designed for SALT professionals from the industry, private practice and the public sector, the Forum addresses both technical and policy issues to help practitioners comply with changes in the law as well as anticipate evolving issues that will impact the SALT field for years to come.
Partner Matthew Schnall will speak on the panel “Top Issues in New England SALT” on Wednesday, November 17. This session, a staple of the Forum, highlights the top legislative, judicial and administrative tax developments during the past year in New England. This year, the panel will address these highlights through a multistate issue approach, identifying key trends and comparisons among the New England states. The last two years have seen an onslaught of state legislative proposals to tax various digital services and activities ranging from digital advertising, data sharing, sale of personal information and social media platforms. This session will explore the approaches proposed, the challenges they pose, including nexus and sourcing issues for both income and transactional taxes, and lessons learned in approaches states might take.
