California Signs “Amazon Tax”, Amazon Threatens To Cut Ties

California has just signed the Amazon Tax, a tax that will allow it to collect sales tax from online transactions. In the last court battle regarding taxes, Amazon was backed by the US Supreme Court from the 1992 ruling, stating that companies cannot collect sales tax in states where they do not have a physical presence.

States are now looking to expand that definition to include Amazon affiliates who make money off commissions. Amazon had also said it would cut ties with its estimate 10,000 California affiliates if the bill was signed, and Jerry Brown signed it yesterday.
