How to tell if your Cloud Computing Services are taxable?

Determining the taxability of your cloud service depends on various factors:

  • Each state and region may have different rules regarding the taxability of cloud services.
  • The specific features and functionalities offered by your service can influence its tax classification.
  • How you deliver and users access your service can also play a role in its taxability.

Here’s a general guideline to cloud computing sales tax, but each case is unique:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS): Often considered a taxable service across many regions, similar to traditional software licenses. This model allows users to access and use software applications over the internet, without managing the underlying infrastructure.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS): Taxability can vary based on the specific services offered on the platform. This model provides a platform for developers to build and deploy their applications without managing the underlying infrastructure or operating system. 
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): This may be considered a non-taxable service in some regions, akin to renting physical equipment. This model provides basic computing resources like servers, storage, and networking that businesses can rent and use on demand. 

To gain clarity you should consult your local tax authority as they can provide the most accurate information based on your specific service and location or seek professional advice. Consider consulting a tax professional specializing in digital services (like us) for detailed guidance.

Why you might need to collect US State Sales Tax

As technology continues to evolve rapidly, the Cloud Computing industry has flourished. However, with this growth comes the complex challenge of navigating Sales Tax obligations.

Each U.S. state has its own tax code, and they don’t always agree on how to handle novel products and services like cloud computing. While some states might explicitly exempt cloud services, others might categorize them under broader categories like “software licenses” or “data processing services,” which could be taxable.

Even if your business isn’t physically located in a state, you might still be required to collect sales tax if you have sufficient “economic nexus” with that state. This often translates to exceeding a certain sales threshold or having a specific number of transactions within the state.

We offer a managed Sales Tax solution for companies that offer paid cloud computing solutions to customers across the United States.
