Maryland Repeals Tech Tax

ACCE Webmaster on Monday, April 14, 2008 at 9:28:03 pm

In a big win for the Maryland Chamber of Commerce and the Technology Council of Maryland, the Maryland General Assembly repealed the "Tech Tax" passed during a special legislative session last November.

Regular Clearinghouse Blog readers may remember that the Computer Service Sales Tax (Tech Tax) was a 6% sales tax on IT services such as custom programing, data processing, and system design.  Had the tax stood, many highly mobile IT companies may have left Maryland for neighboring states to escape the tax and keep their services competitive with others in the market.
