Kendall Houghton, Zach Gladney, and Matt Hedstrom will participate in this conference hosted by the Council on State Taxation (COST). 

Kendall Houghton will serve on the panel “Welcome to the 50th Annual Meeting of COST – This Is How We Got Here!” Join the panelists as they review state tax history, its evolution and expansion, over the 50-year history of COST and COST’s impact on developments during that time.

Zach Gladney will serve on the panel “Handling Tax Controversies to Win.” When your company faces a tax problem it needs to win, knowing when and how to engage, the offensive and defensive tools at your disposal, and how to fight to win is invaluable. This story-based session will delve into a state and local tax controversy from start to finish – highlighting the method and strategy to build a winning approach. The session will emphasize defining what is “winning” and will provide tools to get the win. The topic will cover the use of internal and external resources and how to look at problems and their solutions holistically.

Matt Hedstrom will serve on the panel “Economic Presence in Sales and Income Taxes.” In a post-Wayfair world, do we have one nexus standard? This session will compare the constitutional income tax nexus standards to the nexus standards for other tax types, the status of P.L. 86-272, the Multistate Tax Commission’s factor presence nexus standard, and state statutory differences.
