Current developments in federal, state, and local tax issues for law firms

As law firms continue to expand their reach geographically with new offices and electronically with work for clients at a distance, the consideration of the impact of state and local taxes on the firm and the partners/shareholders is too often overlooked. As state and local governments continue to look for revenue, they are stepping up enforcement of tax laws against non-residents. This is creating a greater administrative burden on the accounting departments of law firms, as well as creating additional compliance issues for their partners/shareholders. In addition, there are federal tax matters that have been a hot topic for law firms, including the anticipated tax extenders.
