    State & Local Tax Seminar

    Course Description:

    Spend the day with us learning about the complexity of State and Local Taxes.  We will review State Reciprocity, Earned Income Tax Laws, the Walmart Law, and take an in depth look at some of the more complicated states (such as Kentucky, Pennsylvania & Ohio).  You will also have a great opportunity to network with other payroll professionals during lunch to explore how other employers handle some of the same tax issues that you face and perhaps gain insight from them on a process they use which could help you.

    Earn 6 Recertification Credit Hours (RCHs).
