Oracle, Microsoft May Seek Tax Refunds, Massachusetts Court Says
Richard Jones was quoted in the article, "Oracle, Microsoft May Seek Tax Refunds, Massachusetts Court Says," published by Bloomberg Tax [sub. req.].
The article discusses the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts' ruling that Oracle and Microsoft are eligible to seek a refund of a portion of the sales taxes they paid for their software to Massachusetts, in a closely watched case about multistate sales tax apportionment.
"We’re delighted for our clients that the state’s highest court agreed with our position that Massachusetts taxpayers have a right to apportion sales tax on software that’s used in multiple states," said Rich, who represented Oracle and Microsoft, along with Caroline Kupiec. "This represents a major win for software vendors and particularly their Massachusetts-based customers."
