Virginia Sales Tax On Maintenance Agreements

23:12 13.10.2021 Napsal: petr.stibor

Ironically, an administrative judge in the world of public accounting recently ruled that registered agents are subject to turnover tax on certain services provided, namely the sales and use tax return and audit defense in the context of state tax audits. While professional services are generally excluded in West Virginia, the ambiguity of state law opened a loophole through which the courts ruled that only services provided by AEs in practice before the IRS constituted „professional services.“ That is why the ALJ has decided that services provided in practice by EAs before the public authorities are not considered to be exempt from tax, so that they are subject to turnover tax. Curiously, according to West Virginia law, all CPA activities are excluded, as CPAs (non-roll agents) are explicitly mentioned. West Virginia taxes most services, with the exception of professional and personal services. The Virginia Department of Taxation is strict about the documentation required to validate an untaxed sale of software. In particular, it requires that a sales invoice, contract or other sales contract expressly attests to the electronic delivery of the software and that no hardware support has been or is provided to the customer for this software. [4] In the absence of proper documentation of the non-taxable nature of the sale, the Ministry may or does tax on the transaction(s) – on the buyer or seller or possibly both – during the review. In general, Virginia was more supportive of service tax taxpayers. One of the great things Virginie is looking for is whether or not a service was related to the sale of material personal property.

Take, for example, an IT company that sells hardware to a customer. They probably also sell consulting services such as system design, implementation, and installation with the hardware itself. In Virginia, design and implementation services are taxable because they are directly related to hardware ownership. Installation fees are expressly exempt by law, but only if the installation is indicated separately on the sales contract / invoice. If there is no flash (i.e. there is only one lump sum invoice), the entire sale may be taxable. Some of the other taxable services in Virginia include many communication services, the production of physical personal property associated with a customer order, as well as meals and accommodations. As a reminder, VAT rates in Virginia have increased with effect from July 1, 2013, and slightly higher rates apply in the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads regions. 1. Employment contracts only. Maintenance contracts that only provide for the provision of repair work are service contracts and fees for these contracts are not taxable.

These include contracts for the maintenance of software that provide services, i.e. updates, revisions, exchanges and programming, by electronic means such as online downloads or online remote access. Persons who provide repair services under these contracts are liable for tax on all goods used and consumed in the provision of their services. This article discusses the taxation of prefabricated software in Virginia. [8] Other countries generally tax software differently….
