A federal and state tax update will highlight recent legislative updates, lessons learned from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and City of Portland tax law changes. Learn about state and local taxation after the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Wayfair. Gain an understanding of tax considerations for choice of business entity. Find out about the pitfalls of employment taxes and explore IRS and Oregon Department of Revenue collections alternatives. A special lunch presentation will highlight cost-effective ways to do tax research and cost-saving alternatives.
