Best Valentine’s Present for the Performance Marketing Industry!
Today the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 was introduced into Congress. This bill, when passed, will essentially reverse the Affiliate Nexus Tax laws that have passed in 9 states and devastated the incomes of 76,000 affiliate marketers. This current version of the bill is essentially the same as last year’s bill, which had bi-partisan support and likely enough votes to pass, if it hadn’t taken a back seat to the dramatic ‘fiscal cliff’ politics that absorbed Congress’ attention.
We have high hopes this bill will pass in 2013!
Many thanks to the bill sponsors and supporters, Senators Dick Durbin of Illinois (and winner of this year’s Affiliate Summit Industry Advocate of the Year award), Mike Enzi of Wyoming and Lamar Alexander of Tennesseee, and Representatives Steve Womack of Arkansas and Jackie Speier of California.
