ASCII Introduces National Sales Tax Help Desk for MSPs

The new program aims to help members understand when to charge sales tax related to service offerings.

The ASCII Group, a membership-based community of independent MSPs, VARs, and solution providers, has introduced a new service aimed at helping members navigate the complexities surrounding sales tax and how it pertains to IT services. Designed to assist VARs, MSPs, and other solution providers, the service will offer answers from a renowned authority on corporate sales tax on when to charge sales tax related to service offerings in all 50 states.

Additionally, as part of this service, ASCII will send updates to its members whenever a state changes or reinterprets a sales tax law, ensuring they have the most up-to-date answers on sales tax issues for every state in which they are doing business.

“Interpretation of tax code is not easy. The complexities of what we offer today in IT services have often outpaced how the code is written,” says Chip Evans, president of Computerware, an ASCII Group member. “By having ASCII provide us with an ongoing resource to help us understand and verify how sales tax is applied correctly is huge; it allows us to continue to go beyond state lines and progress into more cloud and hybrid offerings.”

“As our members continue to expand their services locally and nationally, having a resource to mitigate their risk of improperly applying sales tax is simply one less thing our community of IT providers [has] to worry about,” says Jerry Koutavas, president, The ASCII Group.†
