Remember back in 2013 when Amazon kicked folks living in Missouri out of its Amazon Associates affiliate program because of sales tax issues? I just got an email from Amazon linking to a notice stating that, as of February 1, “Associates residing in Missouri, Rhode Island and Vermont will now be able to participate in the program.”
I suppose it’s not terribly surprising that Missouri’s getting its affiliate mojo back—I’m still able to participate in the affiliate network from here in Indiana, where Amazon collects sales tax. If anything, it’s surprising that it took so long for Amazon to restore it. In any event, it’s good news for would-be Amazon affiliates who still live in Missouri.
