Now that Amazon and the California State Legislature have temporarily taken off their gloves, my Amazon store is now officially reopening for all of your music-oriented gift needs at http://astore.amazon.com/richardkahnmu-20/


The truce came after days of intense talks and will let the retailer wait at least a year to collect sales taxes from California customers. If Brown fails to sign the bill, a costly battle is likely.

Reporting from Sacramento — The deal struck between the California State Legislature and Amazon.com late Friday was a “classic compromise,” even though it would deprive the state treasury of an estimated $200 million in sorely needed revenue, according to Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento.)

The truce was reached after days of intense negotiations and will allow the giant Internet retailer to wait until at least September 2012 to collect sales taxes from its California customers. Although the state Senate and Assembly overwhelmingly approved the bill, it awaits the signature of Gov. Jerry Brown, who has not said which way he’s leaning.

Reporting from Sacramento and Los Angeles — Saying it won’t force California customers to pay sales tax on their Internet purchases, Amazon.com is severing ties with 10,000 small businesses and individuals here who funnel shoppers to the online bazaar through their websites.

The defiant action came hours after Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that would have required Amazon to start collecting a 7.25% base tax on online purchases Friday because it has affiliates here that are paid commissions for steering shoppers to its website. Previously, only Internet companies with stores or operations in California had to collect the tax.
