The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue ruled that all support services for canned computer software are taxable.

Pennsylvania taxes sales of tangible personal property, which includes canned computer software. Sales of canned computer software include sales of maintenance, updates, and support for the software. Taxable services include troubleshooting, training, remote or telephone support, upgrades, and other modifications to the software. Services are taxable when they involve physical or remote access to, use of, or alteration to software.
