Tauber to Speak at Chicago Tax Club
October 26 & 27, 2011 — The Chicago Tax Club’s annual fall seminar will host two days of speaking events including WTAS Managing Director, James Tauber. Tauber will lead a discussion entitled, Software in the Clouds? The tax answer may be a bit foggy! Keeping up with the latest technology is a daunting task, but the cost of not staying on top it can be catastrophic. The potential advantages of cloud computing include lower capital and operating costs, increased flexibility and improved service levels. As new computing solutions become available, taxing authorities are also struggling applying old laws to new technology in an attempt to determine whether sales/use taxes apply and/or if their tax revenue will continue to disappear into the clouds. This session will provide an overview of the general taxability of software, based on the different means of delivery, and various states positions on taxability of software as a service (SaaS).
