"Apportionment '440' - An In-depth Analysis of Alternate Apportionment Methods"
Craig B. Fields

With economic nexus becoming every state's standard and intervention by the U.S. Supreme Court being nowhere in sight, understanding when and how to use alternative apportionment is becoming more critical. This panel will discuss the business reasons for seeking alternative apportionment, the legal standards of various states, who has the burden of proof and at what point in time must a taxpayer seek alternative apportionment. Additionally, the panel will address best practices for presenting an alternative apportionment argument to a taxing jurisdiction.

"The Big Easy Brawl: Paul Frankel and Rick Pomp Go Head to Head 'Discussing' Current State and Local Tax Issues"
Paul H. Frankel

This session is a head-to-head, bare knuckles debate between two leading state tax practitioners who discuss and evaluate current cases and developments in the states. This is more than just a "hot topic" discussion. It is a chance to compare and contrast the tax policy views of the speakers who often find themselves on different sides of the issue in supporting the viewpoint of taxpayers or tax administrators. The speakers provide an opportunity to learn about state tax policy in the process.
