Just got this note from Amazon…
Amazon has received a valid and binding legal demand from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) requiring that Amazon disclose the following information about sellers to the DOR:
Contact information (name, address, federal tax ID number, and phone number)
Estimated value of the seller’s inventory in our Massachusetts fulfillment centers, calculated based on the seller’s selling prices in late 2016 and in 2017
To comply with our obligations under the law, we plan to provide your information to the DOR by January 26, 2018. Because each seller’s business and tax needs are unique, we encourage you to consult with a tax advisor to answer any questions you may have.
No notice from Amazon until today.
They plan on releasing info on 1/26…four days from now.
This info contains sensitive information such as tax IDs…which in many sellers’ cases can just be their SSN.
What does all this really mean?
This is crazy!!
