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.

Promoting “uniformity or compatibility in significant components of tax systems” is one purpose of the Multistate Tax Compact. In addition, the Commission has the express power to study state and local tax systems and particular types of state and local taxes and develop and recommend proposals for an increase in uniformity or compatibility of State and local tax laws with a view toward encouraging the simplification and improvement of State and local tax law and administration. See the Compact, Art. VI, Sec. 3.
