Blog, Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax September 18, 2013

RTRFZYY_72dpi_70On July 31, 2013 a new software services tax on certain software purchases went into effect in Massachusetts. This new tax law applies to the sales and use tax reporting for “computer system design and to modification, integration, enhancement, installation, or configuration of standardized or prewritten software.”

Due to heavy support for the repeal of this law the first due date for the new reporting and payment of sales & use taxes has been pushed out to October 20, 2013 and covers the period of July 31, 2013 to September 30, 2013.
