state and local Tax

Face state and local tax challenges head-on with help from a Sikich tax professional who monitors laws and regulations that affect you.


To stay competitive in the marketplace, companies need to search for new opportunities wherever they may arise – near or far. In fact, geography is hardly ever considered when selling products or engaging new vendors. However, it’s important to remember that when transactions occur across state lines there are income, franchise or sales and use tax issues that may affect your business. In our experience, most businesses are unaware of the state and local tax requirements and liabilities that cross-state transactions can create. For this reason, we help companies identify, document, and address the liabilities that may impact them. The most important thing is to stay ahead of these issues to limit your risks of a state tax audit.
