Please recommend a good book or resource (besides worrying
Katie to death) for multi-state corporate taxation and nexus
issues?

TIA,

Someday maybe I'll publish all my teaching outlines in book
form ...

In the meantime ...

The Bible is Hellerstein (Jerry) & Hellerstein (Wally), "State
Taxation," Third Edition, Warren Gorham & Lamont (2 volumes).
They only want $540 for it.
http://ria.thomson.com/EStore/detail.aspx?ID=STX8R Or you
can subscribe to it electronically through RIA Checkpoint.

BNA Tax Management offers a series of state and local tax
portfolios, parallel (more or less) to the federal income tax
BNA portfolios. There are about 70 volumes. You can
subscribe electronically or get a free preview at
http://www.bnatax.com/tm/tmis.htm.

The Multistate Corporate Income Tax Guide, originated by
Panel Publishers and now published by CCH, is published twice
a year. It includes editorial material explaining state and
local tax issues and responses to questionnaires sent annually
to state tax authorities by University of Wisconsin graduate
students. See
http://tax.cchgroup.com/Store/Products/Product+Detail.htm?cs_id=CCE-CCH-3730(CCE)&cs_catalog=TADS.
(Moderator suggests using http://tinyurl.com/qxvhk)

All of these tomes are pretty expensive. It wouldn't cost a lot
more, and would be a lot more fun, to attend one of the state
and local tax seminars that are offered around the country by
the Interstate Tax Corporation, Caryl Sheiber's operation out
of Norwalk, Connecticut. She offers three-day income tax and
two-day sales/use tax seminars, both introductory and advanced,
for about $800 (two-day) or $1,100 (three-day). The fee
includes continental breakfast and break-time coffee and snacks
every day, a binder full of reference material, and a hosted
cocktail party the first night of each seminar. I teach at some
of these programs, especially those on the west coast, although
I'll be in Chicago and Dallasin November this year. More info
at www.interstatetaxcorp.com.

Another good program (in which I am also involved as faculty)
is the annual Summer Institute of the Center for State and
Local Taxation at the University of California, Davis. More
information at http://www.summertax.org/. This is a four-day
program where some of the leading lights of state and local
taxation are instructors, including Richard Pomp, Prentiss
Willson, and Ben Miller. The 2007 dates are June 18-21. And
you come away with a thick binder of reference material.

P.S. Or you could come to San Diego and take my California &
Multistate Taxation course at San Diego State University
(Monday nights, fall semester only).

Thank you for such an extensive answer. I noticed that
Hellerstein also has a book called "Hellerstein & Hellerstein's
Cases and Materials on State and Local Taxation— 8th (American
Casebook Series)." Do you have an opinion on it? As I am sure
you know it is quite a bit less expensive.

Thanks,

This is a law school casebook, not a text. I have the 6th
edition. There is not a lot of editorial material in it. At
the end of each case there are study/discussion questions
that include some editorial comment. But of course, the
answers to the questions are not there <G>.

If you're going to go the casebook route, I think I prefer
Rick Pomp's self-published three-volume set. It has some
very good editorial commentary in addition to the cases and
study questions. I think it's also cheaper than the
Hellerstein casebook. It's available in a soft binding or
on CD-ROM. I'd have to e-mail Rick to find out how much it
costs now.

BTW, looking for something else, I discovered something
really cool on the UC Davis Summer Institute web site.
There is a list of U.S. Supreme Court cases cited in the
school materials that is linked to the case in Findlaw.
If you're looking for a particular case (e.g., Quill or
Complete Auto), this is a great short cut:
http://www.summertax.org/cases.html
takes you right to the case.

This is part of the publicity for the 2006 course, which is
over (it was June 19-22). I hope they'll leave it up long
enough for my students to use it this fall. I don't ask
them to buy a casebook because we use it for only about 1/3
of the course and it is expensive. I just send them to
Findlaw or RIA (which they have access to through the
University) to read the cases I assign.

BTW, I'd be glad to e-mail you the latest version of my
"jurisdiction" teaching outline.

I was trying to go the less expensive route :). But from
your description it doesn't look like the casebooks are what
I want. I don't have a lot of multistate corporate and
partnership clients with permanent out of state
locations/employees.

I will give it a look.

That would be great. Thank you so much. Instead of using
my newsgroup e-mail address please use my first name at
nccpa dot com.

Thanks again,
