House votes to repeal ‘Tech Tax’

After some spirited debate the House voted last week nearly unanimously (156-1) to repeal a recently enacted “Tech Tax” which would have applied to certain computer and software services. The legislation had caused a great deal of confusion and concern in the tech community and I’m glad there was bipartisan support to eliminate it. I was pleased to be the first House member, Democrat or Republican, to sign on as a co-sponsor of the repeal legislation. The bill makes the repeal retroactive so any monies already paid since July can be recouped. The Department of Revenue is responsible for overseeing this transition, but as always if you need assistance please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
