Six-Question SALT Transfer Pricing Quiz – Know Enough to Win?


The 2022 SALT Transfer Pricing Quiz (the “Quiz”) is anything but your run-of-the-mill test of knowledge.

We created the six multiple-choice question Quiz based on our two-part Tax Notes State article, “SALT Transfer Pricing — What You Need to Know” (“the article”), which was published in January 2022. The Quiz is designed to reinforce foundational “SALT 101” and “TP 101” level content and recent developments in these interrelated tax fields. You’ll score well on the Quiz if you have basic SALT and transfer pricing know-how, even without reading the article.

Launch Quiz!

However, if you’re unsure of your Quiz answers, all correct answers (and instructions on how to determine the answer to the sixth and final question) can be found in SALT Transfer Pricing — What You Need to Know: Part 1 and SALT Transfer Pricing — What You Need to Know: Part 2. We can share a limited number of copies of the article with interested readers. You can request the article within the Quiz or by contacting Guy Sanschagrin or Doug Schwerdt of WTP Advisors.

Trying to gauge your interest in diving deeper into SALT transfer pricing? Check out our recent flyover of Part 1 of the article: Six “SALTy” Transfer Pricing Facts.

We hope you enjoy self-assessing your SALT transfer pricing know-how, competing with tax peers to become the “2022 SALT Transfer Pricing Quiz Champion,” and taking home a prize from a lineup of emblematic Peugeot SALT mills/grinders – your choice from an array of colors that are reminiscent of the American flag.

The deadline for online Quiz submission is Saturday, April 30, 2022.

WTP Advisors is administering the Quiz and all of your Quiz responses (score, name, etc.) will be kept in strict confidence (all Quiz submission data will also be deleted on May 31, 2022).
