Public outcry topples Colorado Advertising Tax

In a stunning victory for our industry, Colorado lawmakers today announced the removal of any mention of affiliates in a bill that once sought to establish nexus for affiliates in the state.

The Performance Marketing Alliance, the performance marketing watchdog group that is coordinating the offensive against such legislation nationwide, attributes this unexpected news to the large number of Colorado citizens who turned out en masse Thursday night to express their displeasure about HB 1193.

HB1193 is now solely focused on collecting use tax and no longer has anything do with affiliates.
This is not the amendment that has been under development, creating partial exemption for online affiliates.
