Cabela’s Catalog Sales Exempt, even though Brick and Mortar Store in State: Idaho

Posted by salestax on September 11, 2006

It looks like Cabela’s is leading the way to publicly display the nexus issues put forth in Quill vs. North Dakota.  But, really, what they’re doing is perfectly legal, and it’s not a loophole in the tax system – right or wrong, it’s federal law.  Their catalog company is a separate legal entity with no nexus in and of itself, which I’m sure was scrutinized before getting thier private letter ruling to allow that portion of their business to not be legally bound to charge ID sales taxes. 

What I’d like to see is Cabela’s argue their case in a state that has definition for “affiliate nexus.”
