Jones Walker LLP 8th Annual State & Local Tax Seminar
October 6, 2016
Hilton Americas-Houston

The Jones Walker LLP State & Local Tax team is back with a day-long program on October 6, 2016, titled Cooking With SALT Goes to the Movies. The team will screen some big hits in the morning, including state and local tax procedure and new legislative developments in Louisiana and Mississippi. In 2016, Louisiana made some of the more drastic tax changes in recent history. The cast will critique these recent tax law changes in depth.

Our featured guest luncheon speaker is Kimberly Robinson, Secretary of Louisiana Department of Revenue. Kim, a former Jones Walker SALT team member, will discuss not only the recent tax changes, but also changes at the Department of Revenue and how those changes will affect taxpayers.

We will then have a behind-the-scenes look at some “short movies” focusing on such topics as negotiating incentives, managing an audit, protest hearings, trials, and appeals. We’ll have different takes with director comments. In the afternoon breakout sessions, attendees will choose their genre: sales/use tax or income/franchise tax.

We’ll wrap up with an epilogue addressing some additional hot topics and have a post-screening Q&A, where you can meet the cast and directors and ask questions.

This program is intended for intermediate to advanced practitioners in state and local tax administration and those doing business in Louisiana, Mississippi, and along the Gulf Coast. There are no prerequisites for this seminar. The full day’s program has been recommended for 9 hours of Texas CPE.
