Illinois REALTORS® are answering a Call for Action urging Illinois policymakers to make sure a 10 percent sales tax on advertising and related services never gains traction. (Take part here).

As of Monday morning, 2,531 IAR members have sent more than 5,000 emails to state senators and representatives telling them implementing the ad tax would hurt the state’s business climate.

You can visit a website set up by a coalition of business and consumer groups which see the tax as a business threat. IAR sees any move to tax advertising as something which would hurt members who often use advertising to market properties for and to clients.
