Most U.S. and cross-border tax courses deal solely with federal tax law. Beyond this is a complex maze of U.S. state tax laws. There are 50 states and the District of Columbia, which each have its own legislature and have each different tax laws and systems. Cross-border tax takes on a new meaning from not over country borders, but across the states.
There are income, sales, franchise and property taxes to name a few. It is regulated at the state and sometimes city and county levels. According to the Tax Foundation, there are 11,000 taxing jurisdictions in the United States.
