Wednesday, September 2 | Domestic tax quarterly webcast series | A focus on state tax matters (1 pm ET)

For our third quarterly webcast in 2020, we will focus on state and local tax issues related to the state tax authority responses to the COVID-19 emergency, the ensuing state fiscal impact created by government mandates to close businesses and the possible impact on state taxes of upcoming federal, state and local elections. Topics to be addressed include:

  • State of the states: the impact of COVID-19 on state and local tax revenues now and in the future
  • The latest on state tax responses to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the recent adoption of federal TCJA-related regulations
  • State and local tax considerations related to the "work from home" (WFH) arrangements in response to orders issued by various federal, state and local governmental agencies and the impact the new WFH paradigm may have from a state and local tax perspective on employers and their employees going forward
  • The state and local tax controversy ramifications of WFH arrangements for both taxpayers and state revenue agencies alike, including a discussion of the challenges and the potential benefits
  • A discussion of the November 2020 election season from a state and local tax perspective, including a focused discussion on California's Proposition 15 ballot measure, which, if approved by California voters, could radically change the way California assessment processes for commercial and industrial real property located in the state

Please join us for this 90-minute, interactive webcast. We welcome and encourage you to ask questions.
