Best Buy Backs California Internet Sales TaxJuly 12, 2011 By Stephen Silver
Best Buy said Tuesday that it supports the recently-enacted Internet sales tax passed in California. The law caused Amazon to drop all of its affiliates in that state.
"The new law includes provisions that will require online and other remote sellers to collect and remit California sales tax if they use in-state affiliate sellers or have substantial ownership of subsidiary companies or operations located in California," the retailer said in the unsigned statement.
"The sales tax is already collected by traditional brick-and-mortar retailers on purchases."
