Virginia’s Governor signed H.B. 1155, which expands the sales tax exemption for amplification, transmission and distribution equipment to now include “network equipment” that is used to provide Internet service. The expanded exemption defines a “network” to include modems, fiber optic cables, coaxial cables, radio equipment, routing equipment, switching equipment, a cable modem termination system, associated software, transmitters, power equipment, storage devices, servers, multiplexers, and antennas that are used to provide Internet service. This exemption is available to telephone common carriers whose networks are also used to provide services other than Internet. The amended exemption becomes effective July 1, 2022.
