(Yes, I’m going to break my own unspoken rule and wax political on my blog.) The government is notoriously business-unfriendly–with everything from high taxes on business earnings to badgering businesses into more work.) Okay, you want examples.
Here are a few things I’ve had to deal with: But the final straw came recently.
Now, not only do they make less money from affiliates like me who paid income tax on income received from Amazon, but they don’t make any more money from Amazon, because Amazon still doesn’t have to pay sales tax to California.
This is, in effect, one of the dumbest laws ever passed.
Alas, she didn’t win, and California elected a governor for another term who was a ridiculously weak governor in his first term.
And he managed to royally screw things up for small businesses again.
But now I’m ready to move on…and I’m sad to say the reason why. The weather is amazing, the beaches are beautiful, and the people are friendly and generally entrepreneurial.
It’s a refreshing change from the Bay Area, where everyone seemed like they were always “too busy” to hang out.
Basically, the law says that if Amazon has affiliates (people like me who drive traffic to Amazon in exchange for a cut of sales made from people who click through our links), that Amazon has a “presence” in the state of California–and therefore must collect sales tax here.And it’s pretty much par for the course for someone like Jerry Brown.I could get around the law by setting up a corporation in some other state and then setting up my Amazon payments to go through that corporation.(See the full list of states with no income tax on Wikipedia.) Of those four states, Texas is by far the most palatable.I already spend a few weeks a year in Austin thanks to various speaking gigs.
