10-45-2.4. Tax on products transferred electronically.
There is hereby imposed a tax at the same rate as that imposed upon sales of tangible personal property in this state upon the gross receipts of all sales, leases, or rentals of any product transferred electronically.
The tax is imposed if:
(1) The sale is to an end user;
(2) The sale is to a person who is not an end user, unless otherwise exempted by this chapter;
(3) The seller grants the right of permanent or less than permanent use of the products transferred electronically; or
(4) The sale is conditioned or not conditioned upon continued payment.
For the purposes of this section, the term, end user, does not include any person who received by contract any product transferred electronically for further commercial broadcast, rebroadcast, transmission, retransmission, licensing, relicensing, distribution, redistribution, or exhibition of the product, in whole or in part, to another person.
For the purposes of this section, the term, permanent use, means perpetual or for an indefinite or unspecified length of time. The sale of a digital code that may be utilized to obtain a product transferred electronically shall be taxed in the same manner as the product transferred electronically. A digital code is a code that permits a purchaser to obtain at a later date a product transferred electronically.
