Terminated by Amazon and Jerry Brown
Sometimes we are unaware of how intertwined we are with the federal government. The story of taxing online retailers illustrates the constant tension between government elites, corporate owners, and consumers. If you are unsatisfied with the tax system, then be sure to let your representatives know.
Below is the letter sent by Amazon to associates because of changes to the tax system.
For well over a decade, the Amazon Associates Program has worked with thousands of California residents. Unfortunately, a potential new law that may be signed by Governor Brown compels us to terminate this program for California-based participants. It specifically imposes the collection of taxes from consumers on sales by online retailers - including but not limited to those referred by California-based marketing affiliates like you - even if those retailers have no physical presence in the state."
