...Everytime someone avoids paying a dollar in taxes, it is a dollar that will be recovered from some place else. Perhaps, your pocket. ...
But these nexus taxes won't help Illinois at all because the affiliate network will simply cut me loose. I lose amazon referral fees, Illinois loses taxing my lossed affiliate income. It's plain stupid on Illinois' congress' part to tax this way. The only ones who benefit from this are large brick-and-mortar corps--the ones who are likely behind this garbage. Illinois does NOT benefit by setting up this nexus tax.
IT'S A "STUPIDITY STATE TAX" that benefits only the brick-n-mortar businesses.
If Illinois would kill this tax, they'd continue to tax my affiliate income at the state income tax level and when I make purchases within the state (sales tax).
