Trostorff Quoted in Greater Baton Rouge Business Report
March 14, 2006
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Jones Walker partner Alex Trostorff was quoted in an article titled “The storms that keep on giving,” which appeared in the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.  The article examines the forms of tax relief available to residents of Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states as a result of the Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act of 2005 and the Gulf Opportunity Zone (GO Zone) Act of 2005.  Trostorff, a certified Tax Law Specialist, was in Washington, D.C. two days after Katrina, working with the Louisiana delegation and others on a laundry list of tax provisions.  Trostorff was quoted as saying that the wish list of tax provisions was very aggressive and “at the end of the day, some of them became law.”
