You'd like to learn more about the taxation of Heroku services and what states are subject to taxation for services rendered.
In order to become tax compliant, Heroku is charging taxes to customers in 18 U.S. states starting August 1, 2019. The 18 states affected are:
- District of Columbia
- New Mexico
- New York
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
Additional states will be added as Heroku continues to become tax compliant.
Taxes are based on the billing address entered during credit card verification. Taxes will appear on both Personal and Team Heroku Accounts whose address is listed in one of those 18 states.
Heroku is happy to comply with sales tax exemption requests from eligible organizations. To be given sales tax exemption, a Team Admin, Account Owner or Personal Account holder must submit your organization's state tax exemption form as an attachment to a Heroku Support ticket.
We cannot accept Federal (IRS) tax exemption forms; only the state form will be used for sales tax exemption. Once the request has been received, please allow 10-12 business days for processing.
