Fletcher Quoted in Tax Notes
December 5, 2016

John F. Fletcher, a partner on the firm's State & Local Tax Team in the firm's Jackson office, was quoted in the Tax Notes article, "Revenue Commissioner, Tax Foundation Offer Reform Ideas for Mississippi's Next Legislative Session." The Mississippi Revenue Commissioner, Herb Frierson, testified November 1, 2016, before the Legislature's Tax Policy Panel, a bicameral committee of lawmakers considering options for tax reform, and avoided taking a policy position on the options he presented to the panel but instead wanted to highlight various options. Mr. Fletcher, who attended the hearing, said Frierson suggested that, among other items, lawmakers consider economic nexus, but only for income tax purposes.
