Welcome to the January 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 includes articles addressing (i) national developments in sales tax nexus, (ii) an Indiana Tax Court ruling overturning the state's attempt to use market-based sourcing, (iii) a New Jersey Tax Court decision prohibiting the state from requiring a non-U.S. taxpayer to include worldwide income for state tax purposes, (iv) a Michigan Court of Appeals opinion explaining when a retailer may also be a contractor for sales tax purposes and (v) a Texas letter ruling addressing sales tax sourcing for certain services purchased over the Internet.
