California Legislators Send Budget Closing ‘Amazon Tax Loophole’ To Governor

“For only the second time in 25 years a California spending plan was passed” on time yesterday. Included in the budget sent by legislators to Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) was a provision closing the “Amazon tax loophole,” which allows online retailers to escape the collection of sales taxes. “We’re finally on the way to creating a level playing field for California companies,” said State Sen. Loni Hancock in response to the bill’s passage.
