State taxation of financial institutions
Taxation of financial institutions is a complex and developing area. As the definitions of a “financial institution” are progressively broadened, a number of corporations are being subject to tax under these complex, and often inconsistent, laws. While bank taxation has never been a particularly uniform practice, there are increasingly difficult issues, including entity classification, nexus, apportionment, combined reporting and due process.
