The Amazon Tax

New York came up with a creative approach last week to snagging and other online retailers with affiliate programs.

The gist is that affiliates an online vendor has in a state (people who they pay a commission to for referring business to the vendor's web site - has thousands all over the country) count as a physical presence in the state. actually suspended their referral program in New York because of this.

Here's a later story

All credit to NY for coming up with an interesting approach. This should be interesting.
