Are certain States not allowed to participate in the Amazon's associates program?
If yes, then which states and why not?
There is no mention of specific states being excluded from participating in the Amazon Associates Program. There is no mention, that I see, in the Associates Program Participation Requirements or the Associates Program Operating Agreement.

Residents of Arkansas AR, Colorado CO, Illinois IL, North Carolina NC, and Rhode Island RI, are ineligible for Amazon Associates Program. At one point this included California CA. California was taken off the Amazon Associates ineligible states list after closing all CA associates accounts for 3 months. It's due to state laws regarding interstate tax fees that Amazon refuses to pay, and won't put the burden on us as associates. Minnesota MN will be added to this list July 1st, 2013. Amazon opposes these laws as unconstitutional. There is a federal Marketplace Fairness Act pending before Congress. If passed it would override the current ineligible status of these states. Please see bottom paragraph in Section 2 In the Operators Agreement for Amazon Associate Program Ineligible States https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp … /agreement

I had an Amazon Associate's account for almost just as long as I've had my Hubpages account. While I never really earned much on it, I still appreciated the little income I would get, especially around Halloween. I then tried to sign up for the Hubpages Amazon program, but after trying it for a...

I just got an email from the Amazon Associates program and because of Illinois' new tax laws, Amazon is no longer allowing IL residents to participate in the program. Now that's discouraging to someone who has just recently begun on Hubpages
