NYU 33rd Institute on State and Local Taxation

Location: Grand Hyatt New York, New York, NY

Topic: TAXES AT THE LOCAL LEVEL: A RISING CONCERN

Local taxes are a growing concern among multistate companies. Localities are feeling the pressure to
provide services and with the reduction in the historical funding from the state treasuries, localities
are in turn stepping up enforcement of existing revenue provisions and enacting new revenue
provisions. Often, both the business community and the local taxing jurisdictions are working with
less than clear statutes and ordinances and very little defined administrative process in both the
imposition of the tax and the appeals process. This session provides a perspective on the types of
taxes and fees imposed by localities and how the localities and the business community interact in
understanding both the taxes and the appeals process.
