Multistate Income/Franchise Tax Hot Topics: P.L. 86-272 and Related-Party Transactions

2023 National Multistate Tax Symposium

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Lake Buena Vista, FL

Blank Rome State + Local Tax partner Craig B. Fields will serve as a panelist at the 2023 National Multistate Tax Symposium, presented by Deloitte Tax LLP in collaboration with the Tax Section of the Florida Bar, being held February 8 through 10, 2023, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Now in its 19th year, this year’s Symposium will challenge participants to lead as business advisors within their organizations to cultivate and foster a thriving, highly valued multistate tax function attuned to everchanging business needs. The value-driven forum offers businesses the opportunity to hear from and interact with leading practitioners, industry peers, and colleagues from across the country.

Craig’s session, “Multistate Income/Franchise Tax Hot Topics: P.L. 86-272 and Related-Party Transactions,” will take place on Friday, February 10, from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. and again from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.


Common organizational structures, related-party transactions, and nexus and sourcing postures are increasingly under scrutiny by the states. This panel of multistate income/franchise tax professionals will discuss the increased trend in many states of challenging related-party transactions, the erosion of P.L. 86-272 protections, and other select income and franchise tax developments impacting businesses today. They will consider how states continue to collaborate on transfer pricing work; the potential consequences businesses may face if they are unable to provide state-requested documentation; and some leading practices to address these concerns from a practical standpoint, including data management and use of modeling tools, documentation, and transfer pricing studies as part of audit defense, and structural enhancements for your business.
