The COST SALT Basics School is a five-day school providing a comprehensive basic state and local tax (“SALT”) education forum via three basic tracks for the SALT professional: 1) a SALT concepts track, covering income tax and sales tax theory and concepts; 2) a sales tax track, covering sales tax concepts and compliance; and 3) an income tax track, covering income tax concepts and compliance. The ideal student should have zero to three years of SALT experience in the tax profession. Emphasis is placed on student participation in group discussions.

Mitchell’s session, “Restrictions on a State’s Ability to Tax,” is scheduled for Thursday, May 23, from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and the panel will review the various restrictions on a state’s ability to impose taxes, such as constitutional restrictions, federal legislation, and judicial pronouncements.

Mitchell will be joined on the panel by Karl Frieden (COST) and Andres Vallejo (Vallejo, Antolin, Agarwal & Kanter).
