Todd Lard, Tax Counsel
The State and Local Tax Committee is responsible for TEI’s educational and advocacy efforts for U.S. state and local tax issues.
The committee monitors state and local tax developments throughout the country, files amicus briefs with state and federal courts on impending state and local tax issues, and files comment letters addressing various legislative and administrative proposals.
The committee has also developed an extensive set of policy statements reflecting TEI's position on important administrative and procedural issues. These statements facilitate advocacy by providing formal position papers TEI's members can use when communicating with taxing agencies.
Finally, the committee regularly conducts liaison meetings with state and local taxing authorities to discuss tax-enforcement and policy matters in those jurisdictions.
