The State & Local Tax (SALT) landscape is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace, fueled by a variety of factors, such as the expansion of states’ interpretation of what constitutes “nexus” for various types of state taxes; the impact of technological advances and the challenge this presents to state tax officials who must apply outdated rules to new “products” and business models; attempts by states to expand the sales tax base to services; and the push by state governments and certain business proponents to involve the U.S. Congress in setting standards that would impact state tax administration.
