Software as a Service (SaaS) Will Be Taxable in Rhode Island

Effective October 1, 2018, all payments received for cloud computing services, including monthly and annual fees, will be subject to sales tax in Rhode Island. This change is a result of the recently engrossed House Bill 7200. Software as a Service (SaaS) is when a customer has access to a software application that is owned or operated by a vendor. Typically, these types of software solutions are only accessed over the internet and the content cannot be downloaded or transferred to the customer. In the software industry these types of models are often referred to as a form of cloud computing.
