NEW YORK – Nov. 12, 2020 – Glenn Newman, a Tax Practice shareholder in global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s New York office, will participate as a speaker in the NJCPA Multistate Tax Conference webinar, Nov. 17, 2020.
According to the NJCPA website, the webinar will cover “New Jersey and surrounding states as they confront significant legislative updates affecting income, sales and use, and corporate taxes.” Newman will present the session, “Two Years Later: How States Have Reacted to Wayfair for Sales & Use Tax and Nexus for Corporate and Income Taxes.” Newman will discuss how the recent Supreme Court decision changed the rules on imposing the obligation to collect sales and use tax on remote sellers and marketplace facilitators; how states have applied the decision; and the “implications for corporate and income tax nexus, including economic nexus and federal protection provided by P.L. 86-272.”
Newman focuses his practice on tax planning and controversy matters involving state and local taxes, including personal income tax, corporate tax, sales tax, and real property transfer taxes, as well as real estate tax and incentive programs. His practice includes handling audits and litigation involving income tax, including residency matters, sales and use tax, hotel taxes, and real estate transfer taxes in New York and other states.

He is a member of the Commissioners’ Advisory Panels of the New York State and City Tax Departments and previously served as chair of the National Conference of State Tax Judges.
