    Groups renew push for online sales tax 'fairness'
    Smart move so they can get the Q4 tax revenue:
    Frustrated with the pace on Beacon Hill, eight Massachusetts mayors have written to Gov. Deval Patrick on Wednesday urging his administration to “move aggressively” to reach a deal requiring the online retailer Amazon to begin collecting sales taxes before the Christmas shopping season begins.

    Amazon has changed the game by reaching an agreement with Massachusetts to start collecting sales tax.
    I don't know how this will affect affiliates since Amazon is going to have a physical presence in Cambridge.

    I expect that Amazon will collect taxes in every state they build a distribution center in. They and Wal-Mart are in competition with same day delivery. Its a negotiation technique to get other concessions.
