SHOW-ME SOCIAL MEDIA RAGE OVER AMAZON PUSHBACK ON MISSOURI INTERNETS TAX!!!
Here's the note that has caused rage among local Amazon Affiliates and shown us that Missouri politicos are killing industry online too . . .
"We are writing from the Amazon Associates Program to notify you that your Associates account will be closed and your Amazon Services LLC Associates Program Operating Agreement will be terminated effective August 27, 2013. This is a direct result of the unconstitutional Missouri state tax collection legislation passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Nixon on July 5, 2013, with an effective date of August 28, 2013. As a result, we will no longer pay any advertising fees for customers referred to an Amazon Site after August 27 nor will we accept new applications for the Associates Program from Missouri residents."
Do a quick twitter search to see the wave of disappointment from Missouri affiliates as our political leadership is chasing away online biz from the Show-Me State.
