This course will provide tax professionals with an instructive review of the top recent state corporate income tax cases. Our panel will discuss SALT cases spanning substantive areas, including nexus, apportionment, non-business income, the tax base, sales factor sourcing, and unitary combined reporting.


Every year state tax auditors launch thousands of state corporate income tax audits. The audits focus on various substantive areas, including nexus, PL 86-272, business/non-business income distinctions, apportionment, sales factor assignment, the unitary business concept, and combined reporting.

The panelists selected recent SALT cases to review for their educational value and significance and include examples from California, New York, and many states in between.

Listen as our expert panel analyzes and dissects the most significant state corporate income tax cases that were not settled and proceeded to a litigated decision issued in 2021-2022.

  2. Top nexus/PL 86-272 cases
