Get State Tax Newsletters via the Internet

BY JAY A. SCHEIDLINGER

TAX BRIEF

M ost accountants today can’t overlook state tax issues. Clients who once did business in only one state now often have business connections in many. This can make keeping up with state tax law changes difficult. But thanks to the Internet, it’s easier for CPAs to stay current. Many states now offer tax newsletters that can be e-mailed when available, and others post the newsletters on their Web sites.

A listing of all 50 states and the District of Columbia tells where to find each newsletter. (See below.)
