Taxation of accounting services

Some states are likely to propose taxing professional services including accounting services. Proposed legislation to tax professional services will likely be introduced later this year in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington. The probability that these proposals will become law is unclear.

Other states including Colorado, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming may also consider such legislation, according to MultiState, but no proposals are expected this year.

If this tax becomes law, I will modify my engagement agreement and work plans in accordance with the change.

For now, accounting services remain untaxed.
