Illinois now pursuing affiliate nexus legislation

Just when you thought it was safe to enter the statehouse, it appears that Illinois is picking up its own version of an advertising tax. The Performance Marketing Association reported today that they’ve just learned about proposed legislation in the state that targets out-of-state merchants using affiliates to establish nexus.

The bill is called SB 3353 and was introduced on the February 10, 2010 by Sen. Jeffrey M. Schoenberg.

Stay tuned here – and to the Performance Marketing Association – for news as it comes in. We have faith that the industry – and the public – will band together to fight this ill-conceived bill as they just did in Colorado.
