Amazon.com, Amazon Associates and Subsidiaries Say Farewell To Illinois Affiliates

To all Illinois-based affiliates of the Amazon family of companies, 

We regret to inform you that the Illinois state legislature has passed a tax collection scheme that, if signed by Governor Quinn, would leave Audible, Inc. little choice but to end its relationships with its Illinois -based affiliates. You are receiving this e-mail because Commission Junction‘s records indicate that you are an affiliate of Audible, Inc. and resident of Illinois. Please note that this not an immediate termination notice and you are still a valued Audible, Inc. affiliate. But if the Governor signs this bill, we will need to terminate the participation of all Illinois residents as an affiliate of Audible, Inc. through Commission Junction. After that point, we will no longer pay any fees for sales referred to www.audible.com nor will we accept new affiliate applications from Illinois residents.

The unfortunate consequences of this legislation on Illinois residents like you were explained to the legislature, including Senate and House leadership, as well as to the Governor’s staff. Over a dozen other states have considered essentially identical schemes but have rejected these proposals largely because of the adverse impact on their states’ residents.

Governor Quinn’s office may be reached here.

We thank you for being part of the Audible, Inc. affiliates program, and wish you continued success in the future.

Audible, Inc.
