    Residency Part II: A Multistate (and Multinational) Perspective
    Many people have reconsidered their residency as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. With telecommuting as the new normal, individuals are fleeing high-tax jurisdictions across the United States for no-tax or low-tax states. Others are using the opportunity to move to non-U.S. jurisdictions. This webinar will compare residency rules in various states, and what is required to change your residency when moving within the U.S. and to a non-U.S. jurisdiction.

    Nexus in the Post-Wayfair/Post-Covid World
    Doing business in multiple states raises some problematic issues for companies and employees. And now with employees working remotely across state lines due to the pandemic, the rules are even more complex and convoluted. This webinar will guide you through the legal maze helping you identify which states have changed their nexus rules as a result of the pandemic, what activities in the state might subject a company to nexus for sales tax, income tax, and other tax types, as well as the multistate tax implications of doing business on the web.

    State Taxation of Pass-through Entities & the Federal Deduction
    As a result of the SALT deduction limitation imposed as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a number of states, including Connecticut, New Jersey, and now New York, have enacted Pass-Through Entity (PTE) taxes, joining a handful of other jurisdictions that impose tax on flow-through entities rather than their owners. This webinar will take you through some of the similarities and differences of these taxes and some of the questions arising as these new taxes are implemented. We will also look at recent IRS guidance on the federal deduction for the PTE taxes to examine the potential federal tax benefits of these SALT deduction workarounds.

    ​​​​​​​Telecommuting and Beyond: Tax Issues for the Employer
    One year after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many employers are shifting to a permanent remote model for at least some of their employees. But allowing employees to work remotely from states in which they do not normally work can create a host of tax and employment issues for businesses. This webinar will provide the most up-to-date answers for businesses on how telecommuting employees in multiple jurisdictions impacts their tax and employment obligations. It will cover the effects of work-from-home arrangements on withholding and other tax obligations of employers, and some of the contradictory state rules. Finally, we will address the status of paid leave and unemployment under existing federal and state programs.
