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.

In the past Amazon hasn't made a profit and never has paid taxes.

Amazon is worse than Wallmart to it's warehouse employees

So maybe Amazon should fuck off

I know the market anarchist are going to jump in here but put on a diaper to drive a fork lift and work that into your pitch

Now you know how Bezo's "earned" his $25.2 billion net worth. Exploiting people and not paying taxes.

Maybe Missouri should fuck off. The state taxes every fucking thing and then hands out food stamp and welfare like it was Christmas. A fucking shame an old retired person can not sell his old junk on eBay without Missouri picking his pocket. Have a garage sale? There is Missouri wanting sales tax. Be a pregnant 21 year old with 8 bastard kids and you pay no taxes and cash in courtesy of Missouri taxes. Fuck the bridges and highways lets raise taxes so we can do sports stadiums and pet projects. Then charge an entertainment tax to pro sports players, musicians and actors on top of income tax every time they step foot in this chicken shit tax state. What an example MO sets for the rest of the nation.
