With the largest overhaul of the federal income tax code in 30 years, and the repeal of the physical presence nexus standards for sales tax in the Wayfair case, states are working furiously to overhaul their tax laws. As states look for additional revenue and focus on enforcement, you'll need to stay on top of the latest developments. In this half-day course, learn how to handle the complex topic of multistate taxation for individuals, pass-through entities and corporate taxpayers. Explore the latest issues and laws, and find out how to minimize tax liability, implement smart plans and stay in compliance with changing rules.

This course is part of the CPE Savers program, seminars led by new MNCPA instructors.
