About The Blog

The Tax Hatchet will explore and investigate the “cutting edge” of State and Local Tax (SALT) matters.  This blog summarizes and analyzes SALT decisions, including rulings, final determinations and policy initiatives, by courts and administrative agencies, as well as tax legislation.  The Tax Hatchet will provide news about current SALT developments, debates and discussions.  And the blog will discuss federal tax developments from time to time. 

The blog’s creator, Brent Auberry, grew up in the small Southwestern Indiana City of Washington, graduating in 1991 from Washington High School – the home of the Hatchets (and the inspiration for the name of this blog)!
