Amazon, Nevada Agree On Sales Tax Collection
Nevada is the latest state to reach an agreement on sales tax collection with Amazon.com — news that should be welcome by affiliate marketers in the Silver State (and elsewhere).
As Internet Retailer reports, Amazon will start collecting sales tax on items purchased by Nevada residents on January 1, 2014, or sooner if the federal government passing a law that lets states collect sales tax from online merchants.
The agreement is very similar to one announced earlier this year between Amazon and the state of Indiana.
The news is good for affiliate marketers because it should mean they can continue to operate as Amazon affiliates in Nevada. Previously, in some cases when other states have passed laws and otherwise tried to force Amazon to collect sales tax, the online retailer has responded by shutting down its affiliate program in those states.
