MultiTax Commission

An intergovernmental state tax agency whose mission is to promote uniform and consistent tax policy and administration among the states, assist taxpayers in achieving compliance with existing tax laws, and advocate for state and local sovereignty in the development of tax policy.

An Insider’s View of the MTC’s P.L. 86-272 Project

In the fall of 2018, the MTC’s Uniformity Committee tasked a work group consisting of representatives from a dozen states to update the “Statement Concerning Practices of the Multistate Tax Commission and Signatory States Under Public Law 86-272.”  The Statement was last revised in 2001.
In this article, Brian Hamer, MTC counsel, describes the  proposed revisions to the Statement and the path that the work group pursued to reach the decisions they made.  He also responds to criticisms that have been raised to the proposed revisions and explains why those criticisms are not well founded.  
The Commission will consider adopting the proposed revisions for recommendation to the states at its 2021 annual meeting in August.
