The only consistencies in multistate taxation are the constant legislative changes and inconsistent income, franchise and gross receipts tax regulations and interpretations on state and local levels which result in undue complexities and create an environment for ineffective and inefficient state compliance.

SimekScott's income, franchise and gross receipts tax service employs a comprehensive and holistic approach.  We will collaborate with our clients to gain a thorough understanding of their business and operations and use that knowledge to identify their multistate tax risk areas and sustainable planning opportunities throughout the tax lifecycle. 

We can then provide timely, consistent and thorough insights and guidance to address our clients' multistate tax exposures and work to achieve their short and long term business objectives.

SimekScott will utilize their specialized knowledge and experience as well as strong relationships with state taxing authorities to provide guidance that helps our clients manage their income, franchise and gross receipts tax issues and opportunities through:
