On April 23, 2020, the Multistate Tax Commission (MTC), as part of its 2020 Spring Committee Meetings, held a meeting of its Executive Committee by teleconference. Over the prior two days, the MTC also held meetings of its Uniformity, Nexus, and Audit Committees.

The Eversheds Sutherland SALT group attended the Executive Committee’s public meeting. This committee is the “primary policy and administrative decision-making body of the MTC between meetings of the full Commission.” Keith Richardson, the Deputy Chief Financial Officer for the District of Columbia chairs the committee. In particular, the committee:

  • discussed the MTC’s recent decision to allow taxpayers to provide their own narratives during MTC audits;
  • announced MTC staffing changes;
  • approved potentially holding the annual meeting electronically; and
  • approved the Uniformity Committee’s Finnigan and P.L. 86-272 projects for public hearings.
