5 Tax Implications of Using Out-of-State Computer Servers

The majority of companies represented on the Internet rent third-party computer servers to host their web site and conduct e-commerce. Since the location of the server could be anywhere, states are losing sales and use tax revenue due to the increase in e-commerce from out-of-state companies. Hence, states are looking for ways to replace their lost revenue. In Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, the United States Supreme Court held that minimum contacts were no longer sufficient to establish nexus for purposes of local taxation, but instead required physical presence in the state. Renting electronic space in-state does not constitute physical presence or substantial nexus by an out-of-state company.
