Technology and taxation have never been simple.
Recent Congressional and state attempts to tax remote sales are a flashback to the early days of taxing software.
In today's world, one state's in-state seller is another state's remote seller and the products and services sold may not have a physical world equivalent.
In this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report, Katherine Gauntt, Engagement Manager in the SALT Center of Expertise for Experis LLP, takes you on a trip down memory lane by examining the parallel paths of technology and taxation and illustrating how our failure to design tax law specific to the virtual business models continues to haunt us.
The article can be read in its entirety here.
