(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 22, 2006) – The highly respected Journal of State Taxation (JST), the oldest and leading publication of its kind, is adding new columns and top state tax industry thought leaders as columnists, and will now issue six times per year, rather than quarterly to provide readers with even fresher cutting-edge guidance and insight in this volatile area of tax practice. The Journal is published by CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and a leading provider of tax and accounting law information, software and services (CCHGroup.com).
This staple of state and local tax practice was created 25 years ago, “when state and local taxation was the stepchild of tax practice,” according to JST’s Editor in Chief, James T. Collins. “Today, state and local tax issues are among the most challenging ones confronting businesses and high-wealth individuals,” Collins added. The new and improved Journal is designed to help practitioners meet, master and stay ahead of today’s complex state tax challenges.
New Columns, Columnists
Over the years, the Journal has offered many compelling and unique features, such as the popular multi-state tax charts and answers to frequently asked tax questions, along with insightful articles that enhance professional state tax practice. The newly improved Journal will now also include four regularly appearing columns by top names in state taxation:
- Apportionment Issues by Michael Schadewald;
- Nexus News by Maryann Gall and Laura Kulwicki;
- Sales Tax Corner by John Healy and Bruce Nelson; and
- State of the States by Robert Sash and Brian Ertmer.
As always, JST continues to provide regular alerts that keep practitioners up-to-date on hot topics, such as state tax incentives, sales tax exemptions, refund opportunities, and proposed, pending or recently enacted legislation, along with timely coverage of important cases and expert assessments of their impact. JST also remains true to its mission of delivering easy-to-read and easy-to-understand tips and suggestions from the nation’s leading tax specialists on how to reduce state and local tax liabilities.
Along with the new columns, articles included in the first issue of the newly-enhanced JST issue examine hot topics such as California’s adoption of a federal conformity measure, whether New York’s “convenience of the employer” rule punishes telecommuters and whether a reformed intangible personal property tax might be a “cure for inequity.”
