The Nexus Law will affect Your Affiliate Business
The advertising tax, also know as the Nexus tax is moving quickly through the Virginia Senate and the bill (SB660) will go to the Senate floor Tuesday, Feb. 16th. If it passes, merchants (ie Amazon) will terminate Virginia affiliates (it has happened in NC, RI and NY). Other states have similar bills pending and under consideration (New Mexico, Mississippi).
Thanks to the support of many affiliates, Colorado and California have shot down their Nexus bills.
For Virginians, the PMA have sent us examples of letters and a listing of where to submit these letters to our State Senators opposing this legislation.
I feel compelled to bring this up as many affiliates may not be aware of this law which is being pursued by individual states in an effort to get additional revenue.
