Interstate Tax Corporation (ITC), now in its 24th year of doing business, continues to train and update state tax practitioners on how to properly navigate the interstate tax system. With Caryl Nackenson-Sheiber at its helm, the company has dedicated itself to the education of multistate tax professionals in industry, consulting and government through four seminars held in the spring and fall of each year and its publication, Interstate Tax Insights.

Interstate Tax Corporation seminars are known throughout the industry for their practicality, all-star speakers who know how to entertain as well as educate, and up-to-the-minute information, all of which are extremely useful to the state tax professional. Unlike the larger symposiums, ITC seminars range in size from 20-50 participants, allowing the attendees to feel comfortable raising questions, establish peer contacts, and absorb the material, all in an intimate, yet professional environment.

Jennifer A. Zimmerman, partner in Horwood Marcus & Berk's SALT Group will be speaking on two two topics in upcoming ITC seminars: Taxation of Special Transactions and Determining the Taxable Base.

Taxation of Services, Software, Leases and Other Special Transactions -

Application of sales and use taxes to the various forms of computer software - canned, custom, electronic, load-andleave; cloud computing and other services; installation and fabrication labor; repairs and warranties; leases, short-term rentals, installment sales, sale/leasebacks, leases with an operator; sales of assets in mergers, acquisitions, liquidations or corporate reorganizations; sales to government, exempt and charitable organizations; construction contractors. Supporting the exemptions - problems of proof.
Planning and refund opportunities.

Determining the Taxable Base -

The inclusion or exclusion of specific items in determining the gross proceeds or sales upon which the tax is based. Treatment of cash and trade discounts, coupons, rebates, returns and allowances, transportation expenses, trade-ins, finance charges, repossessed property, bad debts and taxes paid to other jurisdictions. Impact of the sep arately stated rule on the taxability of gross receipts and how transactions may be structured to minimize the im position of tax.
