Federal limitations on state taxation take many forms. Over time, some may be more relevant than others. Two such limitations have recently generated a heightened attention. The first is TCJA’s cap on the federal deduction of state and local tax, which has prompted some states to consider “work-arounds” in the form for state tax credits. The second is “P.L. 86-272,” a 1959 federal statute pre-empting state business taxes, which states and taxpayers are finding increasingly difficult to interpret in the internet age.
