Crowell's Conversations: R. Bruce Johnson, Outgoing Chair of the Utah State Tax Commission

The Bloomberg BNA Tax Management Weekly State Tax Report filters through current state developments and analyzes those critical to multistate tax planning.

Criss-crossing the country, Crowell & Moring's state tax team meets regularly with state tax commissioners and their counsel to bring Bloomberg BNA's readers candid and timely observations from the country's top state tax decision-makers. Well into this 50-state journey, Walt Nagel, Don Griswold, and Jeremy Abrams spoke this month with R. Bruce Johnson, Outgoing Chair of the Utah State Tax Commission. In this column, Johnson discusses computing tax based on SEC-reported net income, the MTC's various uniformity projects, and ethics in the practice of tax law, among other topics. Johnson served 16 years on the Commission and four years as its Chair. With his final term recently expiring, Johnson is contemplating what his next chapter will be.
