State and local tax obligations aren’t always obvious.

So your business is based in Florida. This means your only tax responsibilities are to the IRS, your state and the county/city in which you’re based. Right? Not necessarily.

  • Do you have a salesperson or remote employee working in another state?
  • Do your drivers travel through other states to pick up materials or make deliveries?
  • Does your e-commerce website sell products to customers across the country?
  • Do you have a tenant in an out-of-state rental property?

These factors and more can make you subject to state and local taxation (SALT). And every state has different (and sometimes overlapping) rules regarding state tax returns—rules that can change every year.

Ignorance is not bliss—it’s trouble.

The statute of limitations for unpaid state taxes doesn’t stop until you begin filing in those states. So the longer you wait to find out if you’re liable, the higher your penalties will be. Having an experienced state and local tax services professional on your side means you’ll know your tax liabilities, making it easier for you to anticipate or resolve them.
