Distribution & Logistics

The SALT team has worked with several distribution and logistics companies to reduce their state and local tax exposure and to create a more effective and efficient state tax compliance system. Issues we address for our distribution and logistics companies include:

  • Determining nexus exposure for distribution companies with multi-state operations and assisting to reduce possible consequences
  • Collaborating to determine appropriate income tax sourcing with respect to unique state apportionment formulas for transportation companies
  • Identifying potential sales tax traps including tax on installation services for companies that both deliver and install
  • Utilizing available sales tax exemptions such as the rolling stock exemption and advising on the collection of proper resale certificates for companies that buy and resell product
  • Collaborating to ensure compliance, including determining nexus, withholding and unemployment insurance, for all reporting obligations for companies that utilize independent contractions instead of W-2 employees
  • Determining reporting obligations under the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) and defending companies in audits and litigation when necessary
