Multistate Tax Services

Multistate taxation and compliance strategies may be a principal concern for your business and can be one of the more challenging aspects of taxation in general.

States have become increasingly aggressive at asserting that any type of in-state business activity will create state tax reporting responsibilities, or nexus, for an out-of-state business. States are also becoming more sophisticated in the identification and enforcement of state tax non-compliance.

State tax legislation lacks uniformity across states and can be ambiguous or silent on key reporting and compliance concerns. Business activities that pose no concern in one state may trigger a tax reporting requirement in another state. This setting is confusing to taxpayers and furthers the idea that a state filing requirement may be undisputable and that planning opportunities are unavailable.

Trout, Ebersole & Groff, LLP will help your business navigate the confusion and complexity of multistate taxation.

Our experienced professional staff will develop a comprehensive understanding of your business activities and operations. We will then apply a customized multistate tax approach that will align with your current and future business goals.
