Just to be sure everyone knows.
From http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/106/Fiscal/SB1741.pdf :
• According to the Department of Revenue (DOR), out-of-state dealers with commissioned representatives in this state, who merely solicits sales for such dealers, and whereby customers pay dealers directly, does not make such dealers responsible for sales tax unless they have some form of traditional nexus in the state.
• DOR acknowledges that this bill seems to require out-of-state dealers to be responsible for sales tax and infer that the existence of the commissioned representatives creates a sufficient physical presence or nexus enabling the department to require registration of the dealer under certain circumstances. However, the Department has indicated that this bill alone would not be deemed sufficient for broadening the definition of traditional physical nexus in order for the department to require registration by such dealers. As a result, any increase to state revenue is considered to be not significant.
Though this may mean it should have little effect on affiliates, education is key to ensure that.

Buy.com currently charges sales tax in the following states:
Buy.com already charges state tax in TN, so if this bill passes (i hope it doesnt) Buy.com welcomes all TN based affiliates!

I have just started visiting the board again and am very concerned about the Tax grab.
I have signed a petition already. I will add the link sometime today after I look through the forums a little bit better.
Melissa thanks for keeping us up to date on things.
I have recently retired and started building Travel sites so Buy.com doesn't really work for me. But I do have a friend that I will suggest you too.
Have a good day and lets keep the tax grabbers off the Internet.
