Counsel in Multistate Residency Litigation

Client Type: Individual

Hodgson Russ served as lead tax counsel in two New York State Tax Appeals Tribunal cases that redefined rules outlining the manner in which part-year residents of New York State allocate flow-through income. In one, our attorneys successfully enforced the doctrine of estoppel against the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, one of the few times ever in reported cases where the estoppel doctrine has been used against the department. In the second case, we reversed a long-standing position that the Tax Appeals Tribunal had taken, and the result of that case was ultimately incorporated into a tax law amendment.
