There are a couple of initiatives currently ongoing that offer you a chance to help out on the issue of the #AdvertisingTax. The efforts of the legislature in various States are sure to increase with the upcoming New Year – and we need your help.
What is the Advertising Tax?
Many State governments are attempting to use the existence of an Affiliate Program as a defining criteria for a retailer having “Nexus” in that State. Once Nexus is determined, States can force those retailers to collect
sales tax (at a minimum). Instead, retailers are dropping affiliates from their programs in those states.
How can I help and get involved?
Currently there are two organizations that are working for this industry on this issue. We all need your help as there is strength in numbers much more than any individual effort.
We recommend the following:
