TEI Issues Five State and Local Tax Policy Statements

In November 2015, TEI issued five state and local tax policy statements: (1) Reporting Federal Income Tax Changes, (2) Audit Procedures, (3) Corporate Tax Return Due Dates, (4) State and Local-Imposed Audit Fees, and (5) Interest Rates. TEI's policy statements reflect TEI's position on important state and local administrative and procedural issues. They are intended to enable TEI to respond quickly to issues as they arise across the country and to facilitate advocacy by providing formal position papers TEI's members can use when communicating with taxing agencies.
