Retailer Use Tax According to the bill, beginning July 1, 2011, a retailer will be considered a "retailer maintaining a place of business" in Illinois under either of the following:
  1. a retailer having a contract with a person located in Illinois under which the person, for a commission or other consideration based upon the sale of tangible personal property by the retailer, directly or indirectly refers potential customers to the retailer by a link on the person's Internet website; OR
  2. a retailer having a contract with a person located in Illinois under which the retailer sells the same or substantially similar line of products as the person located in Illinois and does so using an identical or substantially similar name, trade name, or trademark as the person located in Illinois; and the retailer provides a commission or other consideration to the person located in Illinois based upon the sale of tangible personal property by the retailer.
For either of these nexus provision to apply, the cumulative gross receipts from sales of tangible personal property by the retailer to customers who are referred to the retailer by all persons in Illinois under such contracts exceed $10,000 during the preceding 4 quarterly periods ending on the last day of March, June, September, and December. Serviceman Use Tax Beginning July 1, 2011, a serviceman is considered "a serviceman maintaining a place of business" in Illinois for service use tax purposes if:
