Indiana Pushes Clarification, Codification of Software Taxation Rules


Stephen Kranz assessed the current “software as a service” (SaaS) tax situation in Indiana. “In our view the statutes in Indiana do not tax SaaS today,” Mr. Kranz said, and the Department of Revenue “exceeds their statutory authority” in making pronouncements on such a tax. Proposed legislation “attempts to preserve the muddied Department of Revenue guidance [and] creates additional confusion,” Mr. Kranz added.
