State and Local Taxation

There are very few areas in the law that can affect the bottom-line like state and local taxes. Frost Brown Todd is well positioned to counsel businesses on State and Local Tax (SALT) matters. We have a team of tax attorneys with the experience and relationships necessary to look beyond a simple problem analysis—offering our clients creative and innovative solutions to match specific business situations.

Planning and Strategic Solutions

Inside Experience:

Our team knows how tax and revenue departments work from the inside, with some of our team members coming from governmental positions before entering private practice. Governmental clients routinely engage our service for our knowledge in SALT.

Strong Partnerships:

SALT team partners with our own ancillary business services:

  • incentis Group to offer strategic counsel on obtaining economic incentives and tax credits
  • Commonwealth Alliance and Morris Communications for governmental advocacy at the federal and state level


Because of our clients’ growth, we have substantial experience in taxation in virtually every state. This allows our attorneys to analyze and recommend the best possible solutions based upon similarities and differences between taxing jurisdictions.

Bottom-Line Planning:

We help clients minimize their state and local tax exposure using tried and true methods to cutting-edge techniques. Our attorneys routinely attend and instruct at continuing legal education seminars, monitor legislation and look for ways to turn the latest developments into advantages for businesses.


We often work with a client’s existing legal, accounting and financial advisors and in-house personnel to make sure that matters are handled seamlessly, efficiently and with minimal business interruption.
