The Illinois Supreme Court did NOT rule that the state's version of the "Amazon Law" originally enacted by New York is unconstitutional. It did rule that it violates the federal Internet Tax Freedom Act. Unfortunately, the Illinois version of the law omitted two words that made it vulnerable to attack under ITFA. Adding those two words would probably solve the problem. The New York law was upheld by that state's high court and is currently on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court does not overturn the New York decision, it would be well worth the effort to fix the Illinois law.
