State and Local Tax Technical Resource Panel (TRP) 


    The State and Local Tax technical resource panel (TRP) identifies issues and develops policy by:

    • Monitoring legislative and regulatory activity in the state and local tax area; 
    • Suggesting areas for modifications to simplify and clarify state and local tax rules; 
    • Providing oversight to task forces created to address specific issues or improvements to tax law, regulatory rules and tax process relating to state and local taxation; 
    • Collaborating and working on joint projects with other organizations, such as the Multistate Tax Commission, Federation of Tax Administrators, Committee on State Taxation, Tax Executives Institute, National Tax Association, ABA, and IRS Fed-State Relations Office, as appropriate; 
    • Acting as a resource to assist the other committees, TRPs, and task forces, as appropriate, on state and local tax matters.
