In this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series, Eversheds Sutherland attorneys Nikki Dobay and Cat Baron provide an overview of a project they have been working on for some time – a universal, multistate Power of Attorney (POA). Cat and Nikki have been working with various interested parties on the business side and are collaborating with the Multistate Tax Commission (MTC) on this project. This is the first episode of a two-part series that covers this issue.

In this episode, Cat and Nikki speak to their experiences and frustrations with states’ POA forms and discuss how the current draft form was developed, highlighting various aspects of the form. A current draft of the form and other materials can be reviewed at the MTC’s website here.

Cat and Nikki wrap up the episode with Cat’s choice of a non-tax question – what’s your favorite thing about the state of Texas, or what’s your favorite fall drink?

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.
