I need Physical Affiliate Marketing Advice

1 replies
Can someone please give some advice the best way to get into the Affiliate Physical Program? I am from Chicago, IL. As you already known, the politicians in Illinois pass an internet sales tax bill. And Amazon is threating to kill the Affiliate Program if the governor Signs the bill. So, can I still promote Commission junction instead of Amazon Affiliate. What is the best CJ or Amazon?

See below:

Illinois today passed a bill requiring all Internet retailers with sales over $10,000 to start collecting a 6.25% tax from Illinois residents who make a purchase on the Internet. A move the would essentially eliminate the Amazon Associates plan and many others and reduce commissions rates for all Illinois residents . All purchases made by Illinois residents would be assessed a 6.5% tax that the sellers would be required to collect. Your websites and your domains are included. Here is the letter I received this evening from Amazon.

LAST QUESTION: I have dual citizenship. So, I might become an Amazon affiliate program using my parents address and my bank information from South America. This way, I can run the business from Chicago, and amazon mail the check to my parent's country. I hope this is legal in the eyes of IRS. I want to play by the rules, but it is too much headache opening an LLC in another state. Just my 2 cents.
Sorry for the silly questions. I am 100% IM newbie. 
Thanks in advance

    From what I have read you can run the business as long as your money is sent elsewhere. I can't see why there would be any rule against this. Many people may live in one country but have off-shore bank accounts that they get their amazon earnings sent to.
