  1. I USED TurboTax FOR MY 2009 TAXES . PAID FULL PRICE TO SEND BOTH FERERAL & STATE TAX IN ELECTRONICLY . IN 20011 GOT NOTICE FROM THE IRS THEY DID NOT RECEIVE MY 2009 TAX FILING . HAD TO GATHER ALL FORMS AND SEND THEM TO IRS . CONFERRING WITH TURBOTAX ABOUT THIS MATTER IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE ! SO THERE IS MY MONEY I PAID TURBOTAX DOWN THE CRAPPER !

  2. I’m considering signing up as a resident affiliate for online links, but I live in North Carolina. Do you have any information on how this law has affected opportunities and available retailers in that state? Should I try another route?

  3. Apparently Intuit doesn’t understand the difference between Affect and Effect. Embarrassing. Doesn’t give the reader much confidence that Intuit knows what they’re talking about…[img]http://blog.turbotax.intuit.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/110817.Turbotax-Affiliate-Tax.png[/img]

    • Hi John,
      Thank you for your feedback. Just want to clarify, “Affect” was used as a verb in the title. “Affect” with an “A” is typically used as a verb and “Effect” with an “E” is used as a noun. “Affect” used with an “A” is typically used when you say one thing has an impact on another so the title could read as “Affiliate Tax: The IMPACT On Interstate E-Commerce”.

      I hope this clarifies the use of “Affect” in the title.

      Thank you!
