    Oh well it lasted while it was good. Because of all the greed and money hungry politicians Amazon affiliate system is no longer in Illinois. This kind of sucks but i guess we just have to move on to different and better things. Now it gives me a reason to move to Wisconsin.

    I've been doing pretty well with Amazon, the income was decent. Now April 15th it will all be gone.. damn I'm really upset with this. Amazon is huge and finding a replacement won't be that easy. We'll all have to move on.

    I'm confused. What happened? Did they just say no more affiliates from Illinois?

    Can't you just setup a LLC in a different state? I'm not from the US, but if I was, that's what I would do.

    If any of you want to find a way around this...and set up shop in another state...contact me. If it is lucrative enough to keep doing...it would be an easy fix.

    I currently have an LLC in IL, but I'm thinking about doing it in another state. Gotta read up on this.

    I think this kind of thing will be happening across the country and affiliates will end up being hit hard.

    Set up a Nevada LLC. You can do it all on-line for about $400. And, Nevada has no state income tax, so you're covered on that part. Of course, when you pay yourself from your LLC, you have to pay your Federal and your Illinois income tax.

    Now even Fatwallet.com is leaving Illinois. They are closing and moving somewhere else.

    My partner got the same email today because he is in IL and we set up our corporation in IL when we joined Amazon as an affiliate. Sucks

    What these idiots (politicians) don't realize is that companies like Amazon, CJ, LinkShare and other popular programs will just drop that specific states affiliate, with eventually having other advertisers fill their void.

    Can you say lawmaker fail? I think yes.

    I just started with Amazon a couple months ago. Just finished my first site that was completely monetized for my affiliate ID... Guess I'll be flipping that site soon.

    The state of Illinois is so cash strapped it's ridiculous. We need emulate California and legalize medical marijuana :cool:
