The Massachusetts Department of Revenue has suspended collection and reporting of the sales tax on computer services for thirty days, pending final enactment and signature of the repeal recently announced by Governor Patrick and the Legislature.
Reporting and payment of these particular taxes that cover the period July 31, 2013 to September 30, 2013 should be reflected on the September return due on October 20, 2013. This reporting and payment extension does not apply to sales tax collections and remittances associated with other taxable transactions.
