Welcome to the April 2017 issue of the Aprio State & Local Tax (SALT) Newsletter.
With dozens of different taxes imposed by the 50 states (and thousands of local jurisdictions), we recognize how challenging it is to keep up with current issues and developments. This newsletter is designed to provide insights on developments in state and local taxes including new legislation, regulations, rulings and cases addressing issues such as corporate and personal income taxes, sales and use taxes, nexus, franchise/net worth taxes, etc.
This issue of the newsletter includes articles addressing (i) a Michigan notice explaining the new ownership rules for combined groups as a result of a Court of Appeals case and possible prior-year filing requirements, (ii) a Florida administrative ruling on the taxability of drop shipments, (iii) an update on federal mobile workforce simplification legislation and a recent City of Detroit bulletin regarding the taxation of non-resident athletes, (iv) an Arizona letter ruling on the characterization of bill payment services under the transaction privilege tax and (v) federal conformity legislation recently enacted in Georgia and Arkansas.

Michigan Explains New Combined Filing Requirements for Unitary Business Groups
By Jeff Weinkle, SALT manager
As a result of a recent Court of Appeals decision that "indirect" ownership doesn't include attributional or constructive ownership, Michigan taxpayers must amend affected returns.
