Amazon.com Threatens California

Amazon.com has sent a letter to the governor and the state Legislature threatening to sever its contracts with California businesses if a tax bill authored by Berkeley Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner becomes law, according to the Wall Street Journal. Skinner’s bill would force Amazon.com to start collecting sales tax in the state. Skinner introduced the bill earlier this year because of the devastating effects the giant online retailer has had on small retailers, especially because it doesn’t charge consumers sales tax.
