Tuesday, October 20 | State & local tax developments in the real estate industry (1 pm ET)

Responses to COVID-19-related issues and state legislative updates

The COVID-19 global pandemic has significantly affected the real estate, hospitality and construction industry, and has resulted in a number of state and local tax (SALT) developments. While the recent Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act legislation offered much relief to the industry from a US federal income tax perspective, many state and local jurisdictions have decoupled from such measures. The widespread movement of the workforce a result of the pandemic also brought to the forefront new state and local tax implications to consider. Projected state revenue losses due to the pandemic are massive, and states have enacted or introduced a number of tax proposals aimed to raise revenues.

Join a panel of experienced SALT professionals from Ernst & Young LLP for a discussion of topics, including:

  • State responses to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • State income tax conformity to the CARES Act
  • Remote workforce issues, including wage withholding, business tax and individual income tax
  • Recent SALT legislation and proposals, including California's "split roll" property tax initiative, New York's proposed recordation tax on mezzanine debt and preferred equity, realty transfer tax increases and more
