If you read between the lines, amazon is basically urging the affilliates to purchase a PO box in a different state, to have their cheque delivered.
How do you have your mailings to that outside PO Box delivered to a location within reasonable reach? (There maybe a way I'm not aware.) Also, many have direct deposit to their local banks. Affiliate networks usually require actual physical residence address for tax purposes (i.e. sending 1099's). Besides that, when the state receives your year-end state income tax with 1099's and they cross check with sales taxes collected, the figures won't jive. State will know something is amiss.
