Illinois- Register Your Vending Machine

The Illinois Department of Revenue has amended a regulation (86 Ill. Adm. Code § 130.701, effective 01/17/2023), to reflect it is unlawful for any person to engage in the business of selling tangible personal property at retail in Illinois without a certificate of registration from the Department of Revenue. The amended regulation states the Department will deny a certificate of registration to any applicant in default for money due. Additionally, an applicant selling tangible personal property with a vending machine must state the number of operating vending machines on the application to register. The Department will then furnish the applicant with a sub-certificate of registration for each vending machine.

Alabama- Payment of royalties by software provider for copyrighted content not subject to sales and use tax.

The Alabama Department of Revenue has ruled that the taxpayer, a provider of medical billing software, was not subject to sales and use tax on its payment of royalties to a copywrite owner for the use of medical billing codes incorporated into its software. The taxpayer licenses the medical billing codes from the copywrite owner and pays what both parties classify as "royalties" for the use of the materials. The codes are known in the industry as current procedural terminology (CPT) content and are used to designate medical procedures that are completed for medical billing. The Department determined that the taxpayer was paying a royalty to the owner to have the possession or use of these copyrighted CPT codes for a consideration and for the duration of a definite or indefinite period of time without transfer of the title to this property.
