PSN games no tax, Nintendo store, taxed...why?

What is the reasoning behind this? I got a 20 Dollar E shop card, Trine 2 comes to 20.99 after tax.

PSN somehow gets away without charging tax.

Kind of lame imo.

Free money in Nintendo's pocket, essentially.

I don't get charged tax on Wii U or 3DS digital purchases (in California, btw).

Both the PSN and original Wii shops (which opened around the same time) use tax if you get the cards from a store in a state that has state tax. If Nintendo was coerced to switch it, the new Sony system will probably have to switch to that standard too.
