I am looking to understand more about sales tax on saas products, specifically communication services tax. Are these being charged? Are they visible to the consumer, or hidden in the price? Eager to learn more.
I just checked telecommunications services I've paid for personally. Twilio says "Twilio charges monthly taxes for applicable sales and usage in jurisdictions where local regulations require us to collect them" in their documentation on taxes, so they may vary based on your billing zip code, and are added on top of the per-minute/message/number fees that Twilio charges. Then I'd noticed that Skype doesn't add sales tax on what you pay for a Skype number or phone minutes—but their signup page says "Prices are tax inclusive" so the $6.50/mo you pay for a US number on Skype includes some unspecified taxes.
With other SaaS, it depends. Typically you'll be charged sales tax from the largest SaaS vendors (Adobe Creative Cloud, for example, adds sales tax to your subscription price), and with smaller vendors based in the US, you may not be charged sales tax if your billing address is in a different state than that company. Some go with tax-inclusive billing, which fits an international audience better where it's common in countries with VAT to have prices include VAT (then often break the price down after the fact on receipts). But in checking some recent invoices, seems not charging sales tax (or breaking it out, at any rate) is if anything more common than charging.
