In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, host and Eversheds Sutherland Partner Nikki Dobay is joined again by Meredith Beeson, Director of State Government Affairs with the Global Business Alliance (formerly known as the Organization for International Investment) in Washington, DC.

During this conversation, they discuss state tax haven provisions, which seemed to be a dying policy. With Colorado’s recent passage of tax haven legislation earlier this year, however, Nikki and Meredith talk about the history and why these provisions are of concern to the Global Business Alliance as well as the tax policy reasons these provisions should be rejected.

They wrap up with Nikki’s surprise nontax question – are you a “Vegas person”?

The Eversheds Sutherland State and Local Tax team has been engaged in state tax policy work for years, tracking tax legislation, helping clients gauge the impact of various proposals, drafting talking points and rewriting legislation. This series, which is focused on state and local tax policy issues, is hosted by Partner Nikki Dobay, who has an extensive background in tax policy.

Happy holidays from the very dapper Doug E. Fresh!

Our December SALT Pet of the Month is a terrier mix belonging to Meredith Beeson, Director of State Government Affairs with the Global Business Alliance (GBA). She’s also a frequent guest on our SALT Shaker Podcast – check out her episodes here!

Meredith adopted her furry family member from a rural dog rescue in February of this year, and decided the simple name of Doug didn’t quite fit his big personality. So, she decided to lengthen it to Doug E. Fresh, after the famous 80s rapper.

The nearly two-year-old pup loves chicken roasters, and really anything meaty, and enjoys walking down by the river. He also can’t miss an opportunity to chase critters he comes across, as well as take many trips to the dog park.

When he isn’t finding rambunctious fun outdoors, he can be known to steal a sock or two – and carry them around in triumph!

However, he’s most well-known around his house for his love of belly rubs and snuggles, and pulling the stuffing out of his toys. His latest victims include a lamb, gumby and a gator, so he might be on the naughty list this year!

We’re thrilled to feature Doug E. Fresh this month. Welcome to the SALT Pet of the Month family!

In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, host and Eversheds Sutherland Partner Nikki Dobay welcomes back guest Meredith Beeson, Director of State Government Affairs with the Global Business Alliance (GBA). Her colleague Alan Pasetsky, Tax Policy Consultant with GBA, also joins the conversation.

Together, they delve into the corporate provisions included in the Build Back Better Act as passed by the House on November 19. In particular, they focus on the various changes proposed to 163—specifically changes to subsection (j) and the inclusion of a new subsection, (n). Alan and Meredith then discuss GBA’s position on these changes and the implications of these changes at the state level. Finally, they wrap up their policy discussion with thoughts on the changes to GILTI.

This week, Nikki’s surprise nontax question is very timely – do you like the traditional Thanksgiving meal?
