This course will explain the unique aspects of New York State and City taxation when compared to the laws of other jurisdictions. Our expert will guide SALT professionals and business owners through a summary and evaluation of key issues within New York's corporate tax, sales tax, withholding tax, and partnership tax laws. Emphasis will be placed on high-dollar value issues that commonly arise in litigation, as well as issues that are sometimes missed, and important tax considerations for anyone operating a New York business.


New York's response to Wayfair in January 2019 requires businesses with no physical presence but sales above $300,000 and 100 transactions to register and remit state and local sales taxes. The effective date of this change is June 21, 2018, the date of the Wayfair decision, leaving advisers and businesses scrambling to comply.

In addition to the new challenges of business filings in New York, practitioners still face the challenges of determining the most appropriate business structure and the best practices when selling a business entity operating in New York. On top of New York state concerns, practitioners must understand how New York City taxes businesses including its commercial rent tax.
