Rich Jones and Joe Donovan were quoted in the article, “Citrix Owes Massachusetts Sales Tax on Software Hosted Remotely,” which was published by Tax Notes on February 6, 2020.
In the article, Rich and Joe commented on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s ruling in Citrix Systems Inc. v. Commissioner of Revenue that the former is liable for sales tax on subscription fees for online software products that are hosted on remote servers. Rich observed the decision to be in two parts with different standards of deference. Joe noted that many state tax issues stem from the impacts of changing technology over recent years, a point to which Rich added that technology is changing faster than tax laws.
