Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D) signed the repeal of the computer software and services tax last Friday, September 27, 2013. His signature was expected, since both the Massachusetts Senate and House voted overwhelming in favor of repealing the tax.
The repeal is retroactive and requires “any business which collected this tax between July 31 and September 27 to return it to the customer who paid it.” Any tax revenue already submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue will be refunded. Information is available on the department’s update, “Computer Software Service Tax Repealed.”
