The Jones Walker LLP State & Local Tax team is back with a day-long program on October 9, 2019, titled Jones Walker Cooking With SALT Goes to Margaritaville! This State & Local Tax workshop will be going through all the greatest hits and new cuts. First, you will be guided through the fin-infested waters of Louisiana state and local tax procedure. Then, get acclimated to the climate after recent legislative updates. Next, we will find that lost shaker and help you add the perfect amount of SALT to your contract documents.

Join us at lunch for “Cheeseburgers in Paradise” featuring a moderated panel of key state tax administrators from Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama. The administrators will provide their perspective on recent tax developments, so you don’t feel like a “Cowboy in the Jungle.” Then, in the afternoon, everyone will decide where “they’re a-gonna go” for breakout sessions addressing (1) sales/use tax and (2) income/franchise tax. After breakouts, we’ll come back together to discuss what “you got cookin’,” and we will conclude with a Q&A.

The seminar will feature special guest speakers:
• Luke Morris, Assistant Secretary of the Office of Legal Affairs, Louisiana Department of Revenue
• Kelley Askew Gillikin, Acting Director, Tax Policy and Governmental Affairs Division, Alabama Department of Revenue
• Karey Barton, Associate Deputy Comptroller for Tax, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
• Jan Craig, Associate Commissioner, Income/Franchise Tax, Mississippi Department of Revenue
