The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Comptroller of Treasury of Md. v. Wynne may have an impact far beyond personal income tax, as evidenced by the recently granted certiorari petition in First Marblehead Corp. v. Mass. Comm'r of Revenue, practitioners say in a new article in this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report.
Although practitioners don't believe that the First Marblehead remand will lead to a different result in the dispute, they say that it should serve as a wake-up call for states.
Furthermore, the granted petition is not the only recent fallout from Wynne: Iowa announced this week that it expects to pay out millions in refunds in light of the decision, according to the article.
The article can be read in its entirety here.
