In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, host and Eversheds Sutherland Partner Nikki Dobay welcomes Ryan Maness, Director and Counsel of Tax Policy at MultiState, for a discussion of notable, current state tax policy.

Before diving into what’s happened in the policy space for Q1 of this year, Ryan shares more about his background and what led him to MultiState.

Ryan also shares what’s been on his radar so far this year, including how this being an election year affects state tax policy decisions by legislators. In addition, Ryan and Nikki discuss how states have been considering changes to personal income tax, and how inflation headlines are impacting bills being introduced.

Ryan also speaks to which states he’s most interested in following this year, due to their trend of changing tax codes, and how crypto and blockchain topics are affecting both states and their lawmakers.

Nikki’s surprise non-tax question this week involves marriage ceremonies – If you were getting married this weekend, where would you do it?
