Judge Declares Illinois’ ‘Amazon Tax’ Unconstitutional

Some good news for Amazon affiliates.

In a big victory for affiliate marketers, an Illinois judge has declared that a state law allowing Illinois to collect sales tax on online sales by out-of-state companies — a law sometimes called the “Amazon tax” — is unconstitutional.

According to a news release from the Performance Marketing Association (PMA), the judge ruled that having affiliates in Illinois doesn’t establish a legal presence, or nexus, inside Illinois for tax purposes. The judge also agreed with the PMA’s position that the 2011 state law is premature because of a federal moratorium on Internet taxes that runs through 2014.

Rebecca Madigan, the PMA’s executive director, tells Crain’s Chicago Business that the law had a big impact on the estimated 9,000 affiliate marketers in Illinois.
