Courts - "Illinois Supreme Court kills 'Amazon tax'"
Crain's Chicago Business is now reporting that:
The Illinois Supreme Court ruled 6-1 today that Illinois' so-called Amazon tax on out-of-state Internet retailers is pre-empted by federal law. * * *Crain provides access to the Illinois Supreme Court opinion.
The decision upheld lower court rulings in favor of Performance Marketing Association Inc., which said federal law pre-empted a 2011 state law's attempt to create so-called “click-through” nexus when retailers advertise on Illinois-based websites.
The state law prompted the CouponCabin website and other Illinois-based Internet marketers to move to Indiana and Wisconsin.
