State & Local Tax Services

Informed tax service can keep your state and local filing tasks – and costs – in check.

In the current economic environment, monitoring and managing state and local tax obligations can be a real challenge. Yet for organizations working to protect their revenue and future, it is critical to stay on top of state and local filing requirements.

HORNE state and local tax service professionals (SALT) help you understand tax changes, filing obligations and exposure risks. Working with your specific organizational structure and goals, we make sure you have the right information to strengthen and sustain the bottom line.

Apportionment, throwback, nexus and add backs can all impact your returns. HORNE professionals help you maneuver the complex multi-state environment and focus on taking advantage of all possible savings.

Sales tax laws and regulations vary by state. HORNE outlines the unique facts of your business to ensure expanding operations into new states is an opportunity, rather than a potential exposure for your business.
