we lost our affiliate status from amazon in IL as well, so far it hasn't really hurt anything
We do not sell retail ourselves, so on that side, it won't hurt us....but, most everyone who retails our products on the web either in CA or shipping into CA will be hurt, which will trickle back to us. On the other hand, brick and morter stores in CA have had to collect sales tax all along, so in that regard, it will level the playing field a bit. I have not read the entire bill, but I do understand that businesses that do under a certain dollar in sales (I think it's $500,000.00 per year) are exempt. So, the smaller merchants won't be affected, just the big guys. You know, I'm an internet shopper myself, and I don't pay attention to tax or no tax....but I do for free shipping or no free shipping. We may all be agreeing with happyhomesschoolingmom ...no effect.
