Title:

Current Issues In The State Taxation Of Software

SKU:WC-1022916
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty:
Description:

Existing tax and legal frameworks vary tremendously among states in such areas as "cloud computing", electronically delivered software, and the treatment of prewritten vs. custom software. Sellers of software and buyers alike need to understand the proper income tax and sales/use tax treatment of these areas.

Your speaker demonstrates the value of "up front" tax planning when making large software investments or for sellers, entering new markets in the U.S.

Such planning is critical to avoiding surprise, material tax assessments and added state-local expense. The tools provided will assist you in taking control of your company's state and local tax environment rather than putting in the hands of tax authorities, customers and vendors.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
