State and Local Tax Services

The Crosslin state and local tax practice assists taxpayers (especially businesses) with insuring compliance with the various and sometimes complex/voluminous state and local tax requirements, while minimizing the resulting state and local tax burden.

The state and local tax burden on businesses in the United States is rapidly increasing as more state and local governments seek more revenue to fund budget shortfalls. State and local taxes are a key consideration in business planning, often surpassing the federal tax impact on many transactions. Specifically, we provide assistance in the following areas:
