A nationally known state tax lawyer with significant experience and insight into state tax policy, digital economy and communications tax issues, Todd Lard advises Fortune 500 companies on state and local tax. Todd provides clients with strategic tax planning and solutions to state tax controversy matters, and advocates at the state and federal levels regarding state tax policy and legislative issues.
Todd returned to Sutherland in 2013 after spending five years as Vice President and General Counsel at the Council On State Taxation (COST). His work there included legislative, administrative and judicial advocacy on complex state and local tax issues for multistate corporations, including nexus, jurisdiction, discriminatory taxation and apportionment. He testified before government authorities and filed amicus briefs at the U.S. Supreme Court and state appellate courts advocating fair and nondiscriminatory taxation of multistate corporations.
In his previous tenure with the firm, Todd was an integral member of Sutherland's State and Local Tax (SALT) practice. His work focused on state and local tax planning and controversy, and he worked significantly with cable and communications clients on their rapidly evolving products and resulting tax issues. Before joining Sutherland, Todd served as a Tax Research Manager for Nextel Communications and worked in the Washington National Tax Office of KPMG, where he advised on the tax consequences of various transactions implicating corporation income, sales, use and other taxes.
