State, Local & Internet Taxes Now and In the Future: What to Do to Minimize Your Obligation


There is a lot of buzz and confusion regarding the growing demand by U.S. states to tax out-of-state businesses and Internet sales. As state and local taxing authorities struggle with employee pensions, they are increasingly looking to collect more taxes, especially from businesses. Did you know that Illinois leads the nation in the number of taxing authorities? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Illinois has over 7,000 taxing bodies. Pennsylvania is No. 2 on that list with about 4,900 taxing districts. You are invited to an important seminar to learn how you can minimize your state & local tax obligations. Dugan & Lopatka will be flying in a national expert, Bob Johnson, to give you all the details you need to know.
