Nexus Internet Tax Update
If you haven’t heard already, the Nexus internet tax topic is hot once again with a draft of a federal bill circulated and the State of Utah bringing the issue back to the floor in the fall session. These bills have the potential to affect us all in the performance marketing world.
So, we want to provide affiliates with as much information as possible on this issue by including Nexus restrictions for as many merchants as we can. The will help affiliates understand whether or not they can participate in your program, and it will assist the Performance Marketing Association in showing state legislatures that passing a click-through nexus law doesn’t equal more money for their state.
Nexus tax laws result in more merchants being forced to kick affiliates out of their programs.
Whenever you are able, please log into your agency or merchant account and fill out any Nexus restrictions you may have. We’ve made some updates to the current Nexus restrictions section to clarify what needs to be entered in this section.
To fill out or edit your program’s current Nexus info in your account, go to the Manage Programs tab. Then, click on the Details arrow next to your program’s name:
Once you’re in the Details drop-down section, click on the Nexus Restrictions tab. The first question is, “Do you approve/deny affiliates based on state nexus laws? “. Select either “We do approve/deny affiliates based on nexus laws” or “We do NOT approve/deny affiliates based on nexus laws.”
After that select Yes or No for each state on whether you allow affiliates from these states to participate in your program.
If you have any questions or would like assistance, please email [email protected] and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
