Mary Alice Cashin, Managing Director in Duff & Phelps’ Sales and Use Tax practice, will speak on the breakout session titled, “Wayfair: Problem or Opportunity?” on Wednesday, November 13 at 12:45 p.m. The seminar will address the problems created as a result of compliance with new tax laws, but equally as important, describe the opportunities insofar as incentives for companies as as result of this new revenue to the States. These economic development opportunities may be available under existing state and local laws as well as possibly be included in proposed legislation and regulation.
