TEI Issues Policy Statement on Statutes of Limitation for State and Local Taxes

On April 26, 2016, TEI issued a policy statement on statutes of limitation for state and local taxes. TEI maintains statutes of limitation for assessments and refund claims should be equal; unilateral administrative actions should only toll statutes of limitation for a reasonable, limited period; and when a federal change reopens a state or local statute of limitation, any resulting assessment should be limited to the impact of the federal change on the taxpayer's tax liability unless the taxpayer has signed an agreement extending/modifying the jurisdiction's statute of limitation.
