Welcome to the February 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) how states may or may not conform to federal tax reform, (ii) a potential refund opportunity in Michigan cities with a local income tax based on a Court of Appeals decision regarding revenue sourcing, (iii) California guidance explaining the “throwback” rule and the “subject to tax” test, (iv) a new small business tax credit to the New York City Commercial Rent Tax, and (v) a Texas letter ruling addressing Franchise Tax revenue sourcing for certain wireless data and voice services.

It's Our Turn: How will State Legislatures Conform (or Not) to Federal Tax Reform?
By Jeff Glickman, SALT partner
Even though most of the reforms under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act are effective for tax years beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2018, failure of states to update their IRC conformity can impact the 2017 tax year.
