Beginning Friday, a new state law will require large out of state retailers to collect sales taxes on purchases that their California customers make on the Internet, a prospect eased only slightly by a 1 percentage-point drop in the tax that also takes effect at the same time.[br][br]Getting the taxes, which consumers typically don't pay to the state if online merchants don't charge them, is "a common-sense idea," said Gov. Jerry Brown, who signed the legislation into law Wednesday.[br][br]But those taxes may come with a price.

|6:|| Amazon Warns All Illinois Associates of Possible Termination|
[i]We regret to inform you that the Illinois state legislature has passed an unconstitutional tax collection scheme that, if signed by Governor Quinn, would leave Amazon.com little choice but to end its relationships with Illinois-based Associates. You are receiving this email because our records indicate that you are a resident of Illinois. If our records are incorrect, you can manage the details of your Associates account here. [br][br] Please note that this not an immediate termination notice and you are still a valued participant in the Amazon Associates Program. But if the governor signs this bill, we will need to terminate the participation of all Illinois residents in the Associates Program. After that point, we will no longer pay any advertising fees for sales referred to amazon.com, endless.com and smallparts.com nor will we accept new applications for the Associates Program from Illinois residents.[/i]
