Battle Lines Drawn in California as Amazon (AMZN) cancels Affiliate Program – Competitors Step In

(Best Syndication News) Amazon and other out-of-state retailers will be required to start collecting California sales tax beginning today. The new law is being hailed as a victory for California brick-and-mortar stores who compete against the online websites.

In an effort to avoid the collection of sales tax, Amazon and other businesses have severed their relationship with California website owners. These website owners don’t actually sell products but place ads for Amazon on their pages.

Federal law requires retailers have some sort of nexus with the state before being required to charge sales tax in that state. The 1967 National Bellas Hess v. Illinois court decision said mail-order sellers were not required to collect sales tax unless they had a physical contact with the state.
