Quick Rant re: IL/Amazon

I was reading about the Amazon Associate program and how, once I get my books rolling, it would help me by increasing my income from sales generated by my website by a few extra percent.

So I went onto the affiliate program website to sign up and get “Residents of IL are not eligible”.

A quick google search revealed that because the Illinois government decided to try and force affiliates to collect sales tax for e-commerce, Amazon was forced to pull the program. Really, Illinois?

This is simply ridiculous.
