State and Local Tax

Crowell & Moring provides state and local tax (SALT) advice and representation to large corporations and emerging businesses across the nation. Our lawyers assist with planning and transactional matters, day-to-day consulting, credits and incentives, audit defense, administrative and judicial appeals, refund claims, and settlement negotiations, among other issues. Our state tax clients include Fortune 500 companies across the industry spectrum, including retailers and manufacturers, providers of digital goods, service providers, and financial service institutions.
We regularly advise clients on SALT issues arising from M&A transactions and bankruptcies, as well as on the SALT implications of new legislation, administrative policies and regulations, and judicial developments. Our experience in state tax planning and litigation enables us to alert our clients to best practices and to help them improve their state tax efficiency. When necessary, we represent clients throughout court systems and before the U.S. Supreme Court.
