Readiness for a state tax review means having identified and evaluated your issues; documented your positions; analyzed the best approach for supporting those positions; and determined effective strategies for managing the review and protest process.

The KPMG State and Local Tax (SALT) team can help, preparing you for, and then guiding you through, the review process. In most situations, our goal is to avoid a controversy. But, if a controversy is expected, we help you develop a solid plan for resolving it successfully and efficiently.

From pre-planning to resolution, in one state or multiple states, KPMG’s national network of professionals can help solve the most challenging issues and add sustainable value in both the near and the long term.

We can help you:

  • Identify, manage or mitigate exposures
  • Identify or accelerate opportunities
  • Help prepare for or manage audits
  • Represent or testify at administrate appeals

KPMG’s SALT Controversy Services operates as a nationally coordinated and centrally supported group. Team members will include your KPMG client service professional, along with other firm specialists selected on a case-by-case basis for their specific knowledge of your issue, in your state or states.
