State & Local Taxes

State & Local Taxes

State and local taxes are a part of every business. BMSS recognizes how complicated and overwhelming state and local taxes can be. States and municipalities are facing major budget shortfalls and are continually looking to close the gap through enhancing current tax laws, enforcing existing tax laws and implementing new taxes. A comprehensive state and local tax strategy helps minimize your company’s compliance risk and its tax burden. Our state and local tax (SALT) professionals are available to provide you with favorable, accurate and defendable tax solutions. We understand the complexity of state and local tax compliance, from handling large, multi-state businesses to consulting on jurisdictional state and local tax matters.
