Federal Tax Reform and its Impact on State and Local Taxation

February 20, 2018

Key Topics

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”) is generating significant changes and opportunities in the Federal tax law. How does this new law affect state income tax? When do states adopt Federal law changes? What provisions will cause states to decouple? Will enhanced bonus depreciation and limits to like-kind exchanges impact property tax? Does the new international tax regime impact state income? So many unknowns and questions.

Cathie Stanton, National Leader for Cherry Bekaert’s State and Local Tax Specialists, will provide updates on the latest reactions and actions from the states to TCJA. Updates will include the current status of nexus determinations for income and sales and use tax, as well as other state and local tax issues in the news.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of how the states adopt or reject the new Federal tax law
  • Address general property tax issues under enhanced bonus depreciation and section 179 expensing
