Franchise Tax Matters

When operating a business across state lines, business owners should be aware that franchise taxes may be imposed on their businesses.  A franchise tax is levied by the government of certain states against a corporation or partnership if the company has a nexus in that state. There are different methods used by the states to determine whether to impose the tax on a certain business entity.  Currently, most states use either a "physical presence" or "economic presence" test to determine whether a business entity is in fact operating within the borders of that state.
