Download: Virginia Businesses STOP Overpaying Local BPOL Tax Slides

Join Aronson tax experts Michael L. Colavito, Jr. and Grant Patterson as they guide you in determining if your business is paying too much in Virginia local business license tax, also known as BPOL tax. Each year taxpayers oftentimes misinterpret “out-of-state deductions” and the common deductions and exclusions related to BPOL tax. With the Supreme Court of Virginia weighing in on the “out-of-state” deduction in 2015 and regulations on the horizon, many taxpayers are discovering that they have been making significant overpayments in BPOL tax.

By the end of this webinar, participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the BPOL tax;
  • Recognize the common deductions and exclusions available to taxpayers;
  • Determine if the “out-of-state” deduction is available to a taxpayer;
  • Compute the out-of-state deduction; and
  • Know what to expect if they decide to file a refund claim with a locality.
