Internet Tax Freedom Act
Hawaii, New Mexico, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin still charge tax on internet services. If your company belongs to another state, please verify- but you should not need any changes. Below is an article with more details:
We have created a one time script for changing the taxability on internet services. Internet services must be noted as “Facilities Based Broadband” in the FCC Classification display box on each Service Definition. The script will turn off sales tax just prior to the batch run on 7/1/2020 when you add a batch process. To retrieve our instructions and the script, please login to the customer download area at BillMax.com
If you need your account credentials, please contact us. If you are a hosted client, please contact us if you want us to take care of this process for you. We hope you and yours remain safe and healthy.
Authorize.net New Fraud Settings
According to Authorize.net they have sent out notices over the last several months explaining that they would be adjusting several setting in their Fraud Detection suite. We have seen these changes impact our customers so please review your settings. One example is the velocity (the number of transactions allowed in an hour). Because BillMax does much of its payment processing in batch, we recommend that you change the velocity to 1800 (2 seconds per transaction per hour).
