The SALT Cap Lawsuit Continues....

By on

Earlier this month, those who oppose the SALT cap must have been pleased to see the results in the mid-term elections. With Democrats taking over the house, there’s already talk (here and here) that the next Congress will take aim at the cap. But quietly, on the other side of the battle lines, shots were fired by the federal government, as attorneys for the United States Department of Treasury and IRS filed a Motion to Dismiss the Complaint in State of New York, State of Connecticut, State of Maryland, and State of New Jersey v. United States Department of Treasury, The Internal Revenue Service and The United States of America, 18-cv-6427 on November 2 as noted here in the corresponding Memorandum of Law Supporting the Government’s Motion to Dismiss.

Wayfair Settles!

By on

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard and State Attorney General Marty Jackley announced on October 31, 2018 that the State of South Dakota has entered into a settlement agreement and stipulation of dismissal resolving all issues that had remained in the landmark Wayfair case. The settlement agreement and stipulation of dismissal were made with Wayfair Inc. and its co-litigants, Inc. and Newegg Inc., to resolve all remaining issues in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. State circuit court must still give its final approval to the settlement agreement reached by the parties and to the dismissal of both cases.

We’re back with the fourth installment of "NY Tax Minutes." And once again, we’re delivering all the month’s New York City and state tax news in a way that’s made for New Yorkers. Fast.

This month, we continue to chronicle New York’s response to the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions; we highlight important takeaways from the attorney general’s recent $30 million settlement announcement with a hedge fund manager in a tax whistleblower action; and we cover the tax department’s draft amendments to the state business corporation franchise tax regulations dealing with declaring and paying estimated taxes. We also highlight this month’s new and noteworthy decisions from the Tax Appeals Tribunal.
