As Tyler stated, different states have different rules and laws, and it is incumbent on the seller to know these rules and laws.

It can be a physical nexus, or it can be a set number of sales in dollar amount over the previous twelve months.

Same thing happened in Minnesota, Amazon never collected sales tax until they opened a nexus recently, now they collect tax. [sad]

Yep Amazon has a distribution center 20 miles from me, so quite a few years back they began collecting sales tax.

I would like to know what Festool USA nexus specifics are in my state. Fair inquiry.

A quick google searching indicates there are several dealers in TN.

@bnaboatbuilder Nexus requirements vary from state to state. Although we won't discuss our business operations in each state, I'm pretty sure I know why we have nexus in Tennessee, and it isn't because of a dealer relationship.

Then I suppose individual State laws come into effect also? I am not an expert just trying to provide some answers on what I do know. In any case it is not up to Festool as to whether or not they follow the tax laws. They simply have to follow them.

Didn't get the email either- checked spam folder and nothing there either.  Didn't need Domino since I already have one so no worries.  Signed up again so we'll see what happens next time.

@TylerC I had never received an email either about the domino either. But now that the site is active I registered on the site and once I confirmed I received the C18 email that is up.

Moral of the story: Create an actual account now that the site is up.

@TylerC is there a way to identify a recon tool by part number or serial number. Just curious so that someone can identify a recon tool vs retail if they were to buy in the classifieds or craigslist.

Yes @TylerC , I checked junk on the phone and computer, nothing there. Just got your recent message on both devices however.

Also this morning after I received the DF notification, I had to reregister my email and password because I was told I didn’t have an account, even though I had already performed those tasks about a week ago. And I was given an email announcing the sale...somethings weird here. If I hadn’t registered why would I receive an email?

These things sure are going fast. It'd kinda be nice if instead there was a heads up. The email doesn't pop up in a way that I'd check it in time. Maybe a countdown to the next tool posting. .so I know to be looking.

They'll have a solid-color sticker on the Systainer. However, the sticker is easy to remove, so there's no definitive way to know if a resale tool is from recon or a retail dealer.

At least during the initial launch, we plan to offer no more than two tools per day. So you can go back to your regularly scheduled programming until tomorrow.

Well since you won't tell, I'll assume two options to be inventory nexus - hidden warehouse somewhere in TN which I'll try to find ;) -  or employee nexus as to why, someone physically living in TN employed by Festool USA in Indiana. Festool USA wouldn't be selling $500K direct to customers in TN so I don't see that being the reason (per TN Dept of Rev nexus options). Festool only sells through dealers/retailers which in and of itself would not enact nexus.

@bnaboatbuilder Nexus requirements vary from state to state. Although we won't discuss our business operations in each state, I'm pretty sure I know why we have nexus in Tennessee, and it isn't because of a dealer relationship.

I've heard there is a secret house
Where Festool keeps it's lab mouse
But they don't really want you to know this
It works all day and through the night
will only rest to take a bite
The baffled user longing for information.

Information
Information
Information
Information

The mouse does good but needs a rest,
You see it strolling through Pine Crest (TN)
It's dedication and affection truly strikes you
It goes right back to testing tools
Makes sure they all meet the rules
And from it's cage you hear a cheerful noise

Cheerful noise
Cheerful noise
Cheerful noise
Cheerful noise

 [tongue]  [eek]   [big grin] [big grin] [big grin] [big grin]  ;)

(I wholeheartedly apologize Mr. Cohen)



Kind regards,
Oliver

Sorry, for the OT but a little bit of fun is never wrong, I hope. :)

Well @TylerC this is very interesting, I just received notification of the C 18 sale on my iPhone & MB Pro and the time stamp on both emails is 2:30. I’ll save both messages and can forward them to you if that’s of any sleuthing value to you.

So I have to pay TN sales tax on Festool recon items because of Brent.

If Brent is the name of your state senator, yes.  [wink]

Quote from: TylerC
If you're worried about your friendly neighborhood Festool dealer, don't be. We've involved them in this in a way that most should be very pleased with.

I'm assuming that the involvement that pleases dealers is some kind of commission.  If the dealer gets a commission based on an online sale, that would seem to create a nexus by Tennessee's standard. (PDF)  If this IS the case, then I think that qualifies as a "dealer relationship."

Nexus requirements vary from state to state. Although we won't discuss our business operations in each state, I'm pretty sure I know why we have nexus in Tennessee, and it isn't because of a dealer relationship.

Again, just a guess, not a statement of fact.

Also, I like this new recon format, but presenting three or four items per day would work for me.

I never got any email about either tool, checked spam folders for both email addresses, i do get notifications from festool for most things.  Just letting @TylerC know as it may be the same for others.

This is a crappy way to handle the reconditioned tools that is sure to disappoint most. The desk jockey's/retired folks have the upper hand on those of us who work and can't check their email continuously. Festool's call on how to get rid of the merchandise, but way to complicated. Same mess as the last sale except a different method for getting there. For the record I have no interest in the sale other than reading about the complaints and those sharpshooting the how's and why's.
