I've had this wrong. This is actually much better news. According to the TSB Memo, the $10,000 Threshold to be considered a nexus is the cumulative sales TO NEW YORK CUSTOMERS generated BY NEW YORK AFFILIATES (not all affiliate sales by NY affiliates).The cumulative gross receipts from sales by the seller to customers in New York State as a result of referrals to the seller by all of the sellerís resident representatives under the type of contract or agreement described above total more than $10,000 during the preceding four quarterly sales tax periods. (Sales tax quarterly periods end on the last day of February, May, August and November.)

So -- am I getting this right -- the companies most likely to have to collect taxes under this law are mega-retailers like JC Penney, Home Depot and other big box stores. Which is good news for me because I don't work with big box stores.
What a bookkeeping nightmare this will be for merchants. Why does the phrase "undue burden" seem relevant?

I was thinking the same thing Rhea. Further, does this mean that NY will no longer have the "Use Tax" field on our annual returns? Am I, as a consumer, responsible for knowing exactly where I have paid taxes, and where I haven't?
The short answer is that of course I'm responsible.
The long answer is that NY is making it very easy for me to overpay my taxes. Not sure that's right either.

This would affect bigger online-only merchants, like Amazon, Overstock, etc. It would also affect mid-sized and some small ones. $10-$25 million in sales really isn't a lot. And really it just takes a single NY affiliate generating $10K in NY sales to hit the threshold. Customers signing up as affiliates to get a commission could also skew this.

Hmmm, so is this something we should expect from 49 other states?Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

Thanks for clarifying Michael, I've read over the document about 25 times and somehow didn't pick up on that part of it. Makes a bit more sense now.[B][COLOR=Navy]Nadia Levine (van Rooyen)[/COLOR][/B]
