The Sutherland SALT team publishes A Pinch of SALT, a monthly column about hot issues in state and local tax that appears in State Tax Notes. In this month's A Pinch of SALT, attorneys Marc Simonetti, Zachary Atkins and Madison Barnett discuss jeopardy assessment provisions, which are are intended to protect taxing jurisdictions from taxpayers impeding or escaping the rightful collection of tax.
