The following transactions which are primarily services are generally exempt from sales tax: Software program that has been custom-designed and prepared by the vendor to meet the customer’s requirements; if multiple copies of program are provided, sales tax DOES apply. Software that is prepackaged but adapted or modified by the vendor in order to be usable to the customer DOES have sales tax but the service by the vendor is not taxable.
