As we reported earlier that Amazon.com to Possible Terminate the Amazon Associates Program Due to New California Law, later today Amazon email to all their Associates an email stating Notice of Termination due to New California Law. If this law passes then online retailers including this site we have to charge taxes to our advertisers or anything we sell online,
Here is what Amazon email statement reads:
Unfortunately, Governor Brown has signed into law the bill that we emailed you about earlier today. As a result of this, contracts with all California residents participating in the Amazon Associates Program are terminated effective today, June 29, 2011. Those California residents will no longer receive advertising fees for sales referred to Amazon.com, Endless.com,MYHABIT.COM or SmallParts.com. Please be assured that all qualifying advertising fees earned before today will be processed and paid in full in accordance with the regular payment schedule.
You are receiving this email because our records indicate that you are a resident of California. If you are not currently a resident of California, or if you are relocating to another state in the near future, you can manage the details of your Associates account here. And if you relocate to another state in the near future please contact us for reinstatement into the Amazon Associates Program.
To avoid confusion, we would like to clarify that this development will only impact our ability to offer the Associates Program to California residents and will not affect your ability to purchase from Amazon.com, Endless.com, MYHABIT.COM or SmallParts.com.
We have enjoyed working with you and other California-based participants in the Amazon Associates Program and, if this situation is rectified, would very much welcome the opportunity to re-open our Associates Program to California residents. As mentioned before, we are continuing to work on alternative ways to help California residents monetize their websites and we will be sure to contact you when these become available.
The Amazon Associates Team
Editor’s Note: Diversity News Publications is an Amazon Associate. It appears we need to move to relocate to another state or country to do business because here in the state of California they are taxing their citizens for everything and due to all this business are outsourcing overseas and we are loosing our jobs and many of our people are unemployed. We are having hard time for business to advertise in your websites and now we have to charge them taxes? are politicians crazy because they do not know how to manage the budget?
