Effective July 1, 2015, Tennessee will begin taxing remotely accessed software. The taxable use of computer software will now include the right to access software that remains in the possession of the seller.

Note that if the customer has users that access the software both inside and outside of the state, the price paid for the software may be allocated based on the percentage of users located in Tennessee.

In this scenario, the seller must get a Streamlines Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Exemption from the customer to document the exemption claimed for the portion of the price that corresponds to the number of users outside Tennessee. On the certificate, the customer should circle "Other" on Line 5 and provide an explanation of the exemption along with the percentage of users located outside Tennessee.
