Business Taxation refers to all the taxes we encounter while doing business. Unfortunately, it is a long list including estate, gift, income, corporate, partnership, real estate, sales, use, payroll, excise, fuel, and property. And, you have to deal with these taxes on federal, state (Connecticut and New York), and local level.
