The updated matrix also clarifies the definition of non-taxable support services

The state of New Jersey has updated its Streamlined Sales and Use Tax (SST) matrix.

The entry for optional maintenance contracts for pre-written software that only provide support services was updated by deleting “100% Taxable” and replacing it with “100% exempt”. Also, it has been clarified that nontaxable support services means services such as training, help desk, online or telephone support. It does not include any services performed on the software.
