Whether your business operates in all 50 states, a few, or just one, trying to stay current and compliant with income and non-income tax laws and regulations can be time-consuming and often frustrating. The laws are complicated and ever-changing—no matter your business type—C or S corporation, partnership or sole proprietor.

After thoroughly assessing your state and local tax (SALT) needs, Marcum professionals focus on creating a comprehensive and effective tax compliance plan for your business.
