Amazon strikes a deal with the state of California

Amazon has been struggling with ecommerce sales tax problems for a while now. The latest trouble was with the state of California. In June of 2011, the state Governor passed a new bill that effectively caused Amazon to terminate its “nexus” with thousands of California-based “associates”.

Now, that decision is being reversed after they struck a deal with the state. According to the deal, Amazon will

start collecting sales tax on purchases made by California residents starting in September 2012 if the Amazon is unable to come up with a federal deal in which a uniform online sales tax policy is adopted by Congress by next July

This new bill was signed into law on September 23, 2011. (Read more here…)
