Amazon is cutting off affiliates that help it sell products in Colorado because of a new way taxes are being collected on online sales.
Amazon told affiliates in an e-mail on Monday it would no longer pay them advertising fees because of the new law.
Amazon says the law is cumbersome and no other state has similar rules.
“Amazon came here and they met with the very people that passed this bill, and they said, ‘if you want to do something constitutional, we’re here with you, but you’re not, so we’re going to be forced, unfortunately to have to end our relationship,'” Rep. Amy Stephens (R-Monument) said.
A little blowback for Colorado and an excellent reason to use Amazon for your next purchase.
