On June 24, the Rhode Island Governor signed into law S2650 Substitute A, which clarifies the state’s sales taxation of cloud computing and streaming digital products to comply with the Streamlined Sales & Use Tax Agreement. The bill amends the definition of a taxable sale to include any license, lease, or rental of prewritten or vendor-hosted computer software and specified digital products.  The bill also amends the sales tax base for specified digital products, confirming that the tax is only on sales to end-users and is imposed regardless of whether the right to use the specified digital products is on a permanent or less than permanent basis and whether the purchaser must make continued payments for such right. The act is immediately effective.
