California Affiliates: Affidavits And Instructions

If you are a California publisher (affiliate), I’m sure you’re aware of the new regulations that went into effect 9/15/2012 regarding tax nexus and affiliates.

We are happy to inform you that we’re using the workaround negotiated with the CA Board of Equalization and the Performance Marketing Association.

In order to maintain our working relationship with you, we will need you to complete & sign the affidavit BOE232 for each of the programs we manage* that you belong to. We will need you to return this form to us immediately to remain joined to our programs.

Send the completed forms to nexus @ and put Affidavit or Affiliate Affidavit as your subject line.

If we do not receive an affidavit back from you, regrettably we’ll be forced to remove you from the programs of our merchants without standard California tax nexus.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this process. We’re excited to continue our relationship with you unaffected by this legislation.

*There is a list of merchants this affects below the video. There’s an affidavit for each of them in the zip file download.

We have created a video that walks you through the entire process of completing the affidavit. We’ve embedded it below for your convenience.

  1. does not work as the address when i go to send affidavit???

  2. Nice directions in the video, but the security settings on the document do not allow adding text or a signature. Instead I have to print it.
