    Based on our records, you reside in California. Google Affiliate Network encourages you to review this important letter from the Performance Marketing Alliance.

    You may remember the grass-roots campaign we waged in April, to defeat an anti-affiliate tax bill that would have a detrimental effect on affiliate programs. Even though we defeated that bill, it has been revived, in a desperate hope to help California's budget crisis. The bill was originally defeated thanks to the affiliate community in California, who was responsible for convincing the sponsoring committee that this bill was a bad idea. Now it is time to repeat that stellar effort, because we have a few more people to convince.

    Below is a list of influential people who need to hear from you. There is an email template for your use too, it contains the information we believe will be the most influential. Adding a brief sentence or 2 that describes your business is all you need to write. Please copy and paste that email and send to the names and addresses listed here.

    Time is critical - the legislators may send their recommendation to the governor this week. Please send your emails immediately.

    Many thanks for your continued fight!

    I havent done any research into this bill yet but would like to know if anyone can explain it a bit to me.

    It would be nice for affiliates to not have to pay taxes on their commissions but i'm not sure if google wants us to pay the taxes or not...

    hope people read this
