The second annual Deloitte Multistate Tax Symposium West was held at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.

National Multistate Tax Symposium West overview

This year’s West Coast event explored how your business may navigate our post-“tax reform,” post-Wayfair environment from tax compliance, planning, and controversy perspectives. Despite the lack of formal state guidance for many issues, our panelists helped decipher the practical implications of the recent sweeping tax law changes in our new age of multistate taxation.
