    State & Local Tax (SALT)

    State and local taxes impact all businesses, regardless of size, industry or entity structure, and are constantly changing (almost daily) due to new legislation, court cases and rulings, or simply a state department of revenue changing their interpretation of current law. Additionally, the lack of uniformity of among the states creates a maze of confusion resulting in the risk of underpaying or overpaying tax.

    FD SALT specializes in serving emergent start-up companies, middle market companies, private equity owned companies, and foreign-owned companies so they can adapt to state tax law change and complexity, and achieve their business goals in a state tax-efficient manner.

    FD SALT assists companies in identifying and taking advantage of state and local statutory credits and discretionary incentives, and delivers services related to the following tax types: income tax, franchise tax, gross receipts taxes (such as the Ohio Commercial Activities Tax, Washington Business and Occupation Tax, Oregon Corporate Activity Tax, Tennessee Business Tax, Nevada Commerce Tax, Virginia Business, Professional and Occupational License Tax), sales and use tax, personal property tax and real estate transfer tax.
