The ORSTA defines "tangible personal property" to include computer programs and "taxable services" to include "labour provided to install, assemble, dismantle, adjust, repair or maintain tangible personal property, and any contract for the service, maintenance or warranty of tangible personal property." The Act does not, however, define the following terms: installing, assembling, dismantling, adjusting, repairing or maintaining tangible personal property.
Section 7(1) 62 of the ORSTA provides an exemption from taxation for computer programs "designed and developed to meet the specific requirements of the initial purchaser."

Paragraph 7(1) 62 of the ORSTA exempts from tax "[c]omputer programs designed and developed to meet the specific requirements of the initial purchaser, but only in such circumstances as the Minister may prescribe."
