THE INTERNET SALES TAX DEBATE....

 I'm kinda hoped that this debate would simply "vanish " when it popped up in late 2007, but because it hasn't gone away, and the economic woes continue... It's become in issue they we all must become aware of, and stay aware of...

 Thousand of businesses are considering the headaches of compliance with this tax proposal, and about 200 or more businesses have eliminated their Affiliate Programs because of this-- Overstock has the dubious distinction of being the first major site to do so.

 Many Affiliate Marketers often work for minimal commissions, even though their marketing efforts might take maximum outlays of resources and time.

 When  Affiliate Marketers lose a program, it often causes a chain reaction of losses across the spectrum of online networking-- as well as a loss of a revenue stream for the individual affiliate and his/her sub-affiliates.

  A debate that is not well studied by those who are affected the most is, in effect, a debate behind "Closed Doors ".

 The effects of a wide-ranging decision to impose sales taxes across the board on all businesses, no matter what state they operate from is truly one whose business-killing effects won't have the decency to stay behind those same doors.

 I can safely assure you of that....

The reality of wine tasting is that unless it is truly horrible, you don't dare spit it out... that stuff went out with the 50's and 60's "Jet Setter " elite! They really had "Galls ".... LOL!

The Marketers from your state were especially concerned, Lisa.... Although your governor has vetoed the bill for now, it's still up for debate:

I did not know you had a wine business, Peaceful.
I have just recently started trying to acquire a taste for wine, for the health benefits of it. I did have a glass of Pinot Noir that I liked, the other night.
Some good friends of mine, have a wind biz in Oregon.. and drink a glass everyday. I still make faces..when I sip on wine..lol, but - I'm trying to not do that,lol.

I sure hope these big companies don't shut down too many of their affiliate programs - or advertising commission plans. Something for me to be concerned about for sure.

pplcheryl63: The law will get the little guy every time.
It's not that I mind paying taxes at all, it's just that so many affiliate marketers face the prospect of a turned off marketplace, during a recession-- in a business that is rough going even during "good times "...


My wine business is already taking a hit because of shipping restrictions.

Add a sales tax to my fine foods business and whammo! :(
