- Excerpt from :Brr! Bundle Up to Collect Sales Tax on Entire Transaction in Massachusetts

Pursuant to a letter ruling request, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue determined that a taxpayer’s bundled sale of software and services related to Internet-based marketing and customer communications solutions was subject to Massachusetts sales tax. The taxpayer provided different types of software to its subscribers, which organized customer reviews, questions, answers, stories of the taxpayer’s subscribers, and extracted insights on customer preferences. The taxpayer provided the software either by embedding it on a subscriber’s website or as “software as-a-service.”
