Colorado is the first state to try and force large traders on the internet like Amazon. com. Will there be more, are the other big online company’s just waiting to see the outcome of Amazons refusal to apply Colorado’s tax bill requirements?
At this point and time the only ones getting hurt by the new war of economics are Amazons Associates that have been shut down by Amazon. They don’t own the products, but they might run advertisement for Amazon products on their blogs and web sites.
Amazons thoughts are that if they stop all affiliate sales from Colorado associates then they can rebuke the Colorado tax requirements. So the small time mom and pop internet blogs that made Colorado family’s a little extra income during these hard times is dead in the water until these two controlling forces come to a decision.
More to come, I’m sure…
