I’ll leave the ones up for now, but the long and the short of it is, thanks to the short-sightedness and greed of the State of Colorado, Amazon has closed all Associates accounts within Colorado.
Basically, the state wants a piece of the pie that they simply have no right to. Amazon has countered by closing those accounts, rather than deal with the extra burden and paperwork associated with collecting taxes on both the sale and the referral fee.
So in the end, the little guy (i.e. Me) get’s the screw, Amazon keeps more money, and the State of Colorado is back where it started from. Government stupidity at its finest.
If you’re a resident of the State of Colorado and would like to weigh in, drop your congressman a line as well as our lame-duck…I mean…retiring governor.
