Welcome to the April 2018 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 contains articles concerning (i) significant Georgia legislation passed during the last days of the legislative session, (ii) a Massachusetts letter ruling addressing the impact of a 338(h)(10) election on state tax credit recapture provisions, (iii) an Indiana ruling denying interest deductions by reclassifying intercompany debt as equity, (iv) an Idaho tax commission decision holding that the sale of an LLC membership interest gives rise to apportionable business income, and (v) a Georgia ruling regarding the eligibility of prop purchases/rentals for purposes of the film tax credit.
