Amazon drops affiliates in several states over tax laws.
A lot of people make money by placing advertising on their websites. Amazon is one of the programs publishers use. Several states decided that they are close to running out of other people’s money in order to fund their socialism. Therefore they are trying to collect taxes from people running amazon ads.
UPDATE December 2019 – I haven’t checked but I believe that Amazon might be accepting affiliates from these states.
Amazon has decided to simply close it’s program to people living in those states and to drop all current publishers from their program.
Way to go state legislators.. In trying to collect more money to redistribute to the freeloaders, you have wrecked an income stream for thousands of hard working people.
