THE BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION issued a statement alerting its members and the New Hampshire business community to the newly enacted Massachusetts tech tax – a 6.25 percent sales tax on computer and software technology services that went into effect July 31. This tax may inadvertently capture New Hampshire businesses with a presence in Massachusetts. Businesses with a physical presence in Massachusetts, who are providing services covered by the tax to Massachusetts customers, may be subject to the tech tax. The definition of “a physical presence” may be as little as a single sales representative with a home office in Massachusetts. BIA urges its members and any New Hampshire businesses, particularly businesses closer to the Massachusetts border, to seek outside advice and counsel if necessary to ensure they do not involuntarily succumb to a compliance nightmare.
