The course will expose students to the basic workings of the major state and local taxes, including personal income taxes, sales and use taxes, property taxes, and corporate taxes. We will also explore the special issues arising from the multi-jurisdictional nature of the state and local tax apparatus, and the principal aspects of federal statutory and constitutional law affecting state taxation. We will consider the application of basic state tax concepts to current issues facing state tax administrators and practitioners, including tax advantaged business structures, and some of the legislative responses to such issues.
