State Supreme Court Strikes Down So-Called ''Amazon Tax''


The Illinois Supreme Court has tossed out a controversial tax on some Internet sales. 

 

The so-called “Amazon tax” was intended to make sure that online retailers faced the same sales tax obligation as bricks-and-mortar stores.  But the high court found that the state was imposing the tax only in some circumstances and not in others, making it a “discriminatory tax on electronic commerce,” which is prohibited under federal law.
