About This Course:
For decades, the Texas Franchise Tax remained virtually unchanged. Beginning with reports due in 2008 that all changed with the revised Texas Franchise Tax, commonly known as the Texas Margin Tax.

The Margin Tax, with its combination of a unique tax base and limited deductions, continues to raise a variety of issues for tax executives eight years after its enactment. These issues range from the tax provision/effective tax rate calculation to the overall legal entity structure of the company.

For companies operating in Texas, either currently or sometime in the near future, a working knowledge of the Margin Tax is invaluable. This webinar will give you a broad overview of the tax, followed by a more detailed discussion of its potential pitfalls and opportunities.
