Response: Denver Post article suggests “Affliate” Tax

A few days ago, the Denver Post published an article “Online shoppers reducing state sales-tax revenue.”  As with several other articles suddenly appearing across the country (quite suspicious if you ask me), this atricle too suggests that the “affiliate” tax approach as created by New York State is the right approach to Internet sales taxation.  Needless to say, we quickly posted our comments that rather than trying to recover lost/missing tax revenues from the small handful of businesses which employ affiliate marketing programs, Colorado should endeavor to pass legislation to conform to the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, and support the introduction and passage of the Main Street Fairness Act which would require all merchants to collect and remit local sales tax regardless of local presence.
