In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, host and Eversheds Sutherland Partner Nikki Dobay welcomes back Stephanie Do, Senior Tax Counsel for the Council On State Taxation (COST), for a discussion about two recent proposals to expand the False Claims Acts in Connecticut and New York.

As our listeners know, most states have a false claims act that is modeled after the federal False Claims Act, which includes a bar against tax claims. Stephanie provides an overview of False Claims Act presence in the states and the potential for expansion in some states to include tax matters. Stephanie and Nikki discuss a Connecticut bill from this year’s session that sought to expand the state’s False Claims Act and how the bill was stopped (for now).

Nikki and Stephanie then discuss how these expansions fit into the larger policy space, and how False Claims Act expansion is faring in New York in this legislative session.

Nikki’s surprise non-tax question this week involves Mother’s Day – what is your favorite Mother’s Day tradition?

The Eversheds Sutherland SALT 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. Partner Nikki Dobay, who has an extensive background in tax policy, hosts this series, which is focused on state and local tax policy issues.
