In the latest episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, host and Eversheds Sutherland Partner Nikki Dobay welcomes back a familiar voice in Doug Lindholm, President and Executive Director of the Council On State Taxation (COST), along with a new voice to the podcast, Professor Richard Pomp from the University of Connecticut School of Law. Together they discuss the State Tax Research Institute’s (STRI) recent study, “Resisting the Siren Song of Gross Receipts Taxes: From the Middle Ages to Maryland’s Tax on Digital Advertising.”

The three engage in a lively discussion of the numerous reasons as to why gross receipts taxes are so gross, and why STRI and COST continue to fight these taxes across the country. They conclude with Nikki’s surprise non-tax question – are you a cat or dog 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. Partner Nikki Dobay, who has an extensive background in tax policy, hosts this series, which is focused on state and local tax policy issues.
