Found this in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the other day. Another instance of the ongoing battle between states and online retailers.
I'll admit, I sympathize with the guy who owns the bricks-and-mortar electronics store who sees people browsing but not buying. That's a blow to business, for sure. But at the same time, I don't really want to pay sales tax on internet purchases. (Though, being honest, I would probably not change my buying habits if an online sales tax was instituted.)
The thing that could suck for me is if Amazon decides to abandon its Amazon Associates in Georgia; I know there were issues in California recently with this which have since been resolved. I pepper my posts with affiliate links to Amazon products. Granted, I've only made about 76 cents through the program, but I figure that will pick up as traffic to this blog increases (and that's been happening, slowly but steadily, with a couple of spikes when I pick up external links from other fantasy blogs).
For some people, this is apparently a major issue, and they could leave the state rather than lose their affiliate agreements.
