Wednesday, September 29 | US Indirect Tax Controversy: Current audit trends and outlook, including ways to manage your state tax posture (1 pm ET)

While the COVID-19 pandemic has not reduced state and local tax revenues as much as anticipated, uncertainty about the trajectory of the economy remains, especially as new COVID-19 variants continue to emerge. As states continue to support their citizens while drawing down on federal aid during these uncertain times, increased state enforcement appears likely in the near future.

Join our EY team of state controversy tax professionals for a 60-minute webcast focused on recent audit trends in select states, including California, New York and Texas, and possible avenues to resolve uncertain tax positions. Topics include:

  • Current "hot" areas in state tax audits, including transfer pricing, tax-favored entity classification, review of corporate attributes such as net operating losses and apportionment
  • Emerging areas of tax controversy, such as the broadening of the sales/use tax base and the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (and subsequent federal tax law changes) on state corporate income taxes

Date: Wednesday, 29 September 2021

Time: 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT New York; 10:00-11:00 a.m. PDT Los Angeles
