A holistic approach to tax strategy.

Given the complexities of domestic and global tax regimes, seemingly small changes in strategic approach can have far-reaching consequences to a company or individual’s various tax liabilities.

Total tax liability is both a calculation and a concept: it is the sum amount of all taxes owed at a given point in time, while factoring in credits, incentives and deductions at the international, federal, state and local levels. At the same time, it is a shift in mindset that is enabled by transformation.

As tax dynamics continue to grow in complexity and the digital economy increases transparency, the strategic role of the tax executive becomes more apparent.  Examining total tax liability and modeling the various business impacts is a necessity for companies and individuals to survive and thrive during periods of intense change.
