State & Local Tax Services

Getting proactive.

No matter the state or jurisdiction that your business resides, state and local taxes always seem to be in transition. Porte Brown’s tax experts can help your business remain compliant with state tax laws and regulations, develop innovative tax planning strategies regardless of where your company conducts business or the number of states your company may reside, perform nexus reviews, and highlight potential areas of sales and use tax exposure. Our state and local tax (SALT) specialists are not only knowledgeable about state tax and local tax planning and strategies, they are also highly experienced with a wide range of industries and business types, so you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest level of service and support.

To ensure that clients conducting business in multiple states report their income correctly, Porte Brown LLC created its State and Local Tax (SALT) Practice Group. A company does not want to find out after the fact that their recently completed business deal has an accompanying tax exposure that they were unaware of. Our specialized expertise can help you identify these issues before they occur.


Why it's important.

When goods and services cross state lines, nexus* comes into play and your company potentially becomes responsible for income taxes and other taxes in those states. Depending on your company’s presence in another state (via inventory, sales representatives, etc.), your company may be responsible for applicable taxes in those states. Driving your truck across a state line could cause you to have nexus, depending on which state you are traveling into. We help clients anticipate their potential exposure.

How we do it.

Our proactive team asks the right questions up front so that we can anticipate potential issues. We work with clients throughout the year to minimize or eliminate tax exposure at a later date. Porte Brown LLC is dedicated to learning about your business and protecting it from unnecessary tax liabilities.

Is your company registered in all of the states in which it operates?

Porte Brown’s State and Local Tax Practice Group has experience and expertise in three primary areas:

Next step:


* Nexus defined: a nexus in general means a connection. The term nexus is used in tax law to describe a situation in which a business has a "nexus" or presence in a state and is thus subject to state income taxes and to sales taxes for sales within that state.
