On October 11, 2016, TEI filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in Dot Foods, Inc. v. State of Washington, Department of Revenue, No. 16-308. The petition seeks review of the Washington Supreme Court's decision in Dot Foods, Inc. v. State of Washington, Department of Revenue, 372 P.3d 747 (Wash. 2016) ("Dot Foods II"). Dot Foods II upholds 2010 legislation amending Washington's business and occupation tax in response to the Washington Supreme Court's decision regarding the interpretation of a statute in Dot Foods, Inc. v.
On June 30, 2016, TEI filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in The Gillette Company v. California Franchise Tax Board, No. 15-1442, also known as the California Multistate Tax Compact ("Compact") litigation. In the 1960s and 1970s, States persuaded Congress and the business community that then-imminent federal legislation mandating uniformity in state taxation was unnecessary because a number of States had enacted the Compact.
