KPMG’s This Week in State Tax—produced weekly by KPMG’s State and Local Tax practice—focuses on recent state and local tax developments.

  • Virginia: The Tax Commissioner ruled that a taxpayer providing subscription-based cloud computing services was not required to pay sales or use tax on its purchase or use of software or required to collect tax from its clients because all sales and use of the software occurred over the cloud, and no software was delivered in tangible form (under a longstanding policy that the sale of software delivered electronically or downloaded from the cloud does not constitute the sale of tangible personal property).
