State and Local Taxation
Georgetown’s Certificate in State and Local Taxation (SALT) allows students to specialize in a field that is becoming increasingly important to multistate taxpayers, from Fortune 500 companies to regional businesses. As multinational companies and other businesses expand their operations across state lines and international borders – via the internet and otherwise – the need for SALT practitioners has never been greater.
The Certificate is open to both U.S. and foreign-trained lawyers, and can be completed together with a tax degree or on a stand-alone basis. The Certificate in State and Local Taxation can also be completed entirely online.
The SALT Certificate requires the Completion of ten academic credits, consisting of the following five courses:
