AI can’t fix SALT! This week, SALT Partners Michele Borens and Jeff Friedman will present during TEI Region 9’s Annual Conference, held today through May 1. Michele and Jeff’s presentation will provide some relief for SALT professionals worried about being replaced by non-humans. They’ll discuss some of the craziness that accompanies state and local tax, including the inconsistent application of look-through apportionment, random application of forced combination/transfer pricing/business purpose, unpredictable sales and use tax characterizations of “tangible” personal property, and now-you-see-it/now-you-don’t tax exemptions.

In addition, SALT Partners Todd Betor, Jeff Friedman and Maria Todorova will each present during COST’s Spring Conference and Audit Sessions in Boston, held April 30 to May 3. You can still register to hear the latest on a variety of SALT topics, including states’ efforts to expand their reach on imposing taxes, navigating accounting challenges and combined reporting issues.

At the Spring CPE Event for the TEI Carolinas Chapter, SALT attorneys Jonathan Feldman and Laurin McDonald will present a SALT update on May 2. Jonathan and Laurin will provide a summary of important state tax cases and legislative developments.

Finally, our SALT team is excited to again support TeleStrategies’ Communications Taxation Conference, held in Tampa, FL from May 1-3, 2024. Liz Cha and Chelsea Marmor will provide an update on key litigation and controversies involving the taxation of telecommunications services, including the application of telecommunications taxes to hardware and software and more. Laurin McDonald and Alla Raykin will cover the complexities of gross receipts taxes, as well as new taxes and fees applicable to the communications industry.
