The Michigan Appellate Court, on October 27, 2015, has upheld a Court of Claims decision impacting taxability of cloud computing services. In the Auto Owners Insurance Company case, it was decided that the use of cloud computing services was not subject to use tax in the State of Michigan because the software had not “been delivered by any means” to the user. There is an opportunity for those who have paid tax on such services to file for a refund of those taxes. Please contact us to discuss and for help claiming your refund.
