Third Annual Northeast Ohio State and Local Tax Conference Provides Invaluable Updates on the Current State of Ohio and Multistate Taxes

The third annual Northeast Ohio State and Local Tax Conference was held on November 12, 2015 in Independence, Ohio. Matt Chafin, Chief Legal Counsel for the Ohio Department of Taxation, led off the Conference with an Ohio Tax Update, providing valuable insight to the Department of Taxation’s posture and recent initiatives. Chafin is the highest-ranking official in the Tax Commissioner’s office and is directly involved in establishing policy.

 

“This one day, comprehensive conference is the only one of its kind in Northeast Ohio,” said Steve Dimengo, co-founder of the Northeast Ohio State and Local Tax Conference and partner at Buckingham Doolittle & Burroughs LLC. “Every year we are honored to have so many talented tax professionals, from all over the state, who are willing to present at our conference. This is an event we will continue, and continue to improve, for many years to come.”

 

The Northeast Ohio State and Local Tax Conference covered a wide array of topics, including aligning state tax planning with business incentives, combined reporting, and apportionment trends. The Conference featured well-recognized speakers from both private practice and government taxing authorities. Steve Dimengo presented on a variety of topics, including creative maximization of Ohio sales/use tax exemptions, Ohio’s nonresident law after Cunningham, and an overview of Ohio sales/use tax updates. Fellow Buckingham partner, Richard Fry, presented an update on the Ohio Commercial Activity Tax and moderated the panel discussion regarding minimizing real property tax and maximizing Ohio tax incentives.
