As Amy Quinton reports from Sacramento, starting Saturday, Californians will have to pay sales taxes on purchases.</p><p>The new requirement comes after a long battle last year between Amazon and California lawmakers. But 200 other out of state companies with major business in California could also be on the hook to collect sales taxes. It applies to any company with more than a million dollars in sales to Californians in the past year or more than $10,000 dollars in sales referred by an affiliate in the state.</p> Thu, 13 Sep 2012 19:00:56 +0000 Amy Quinton 3872 at http://kvpr.org
