Hello,

Different contributor here. Please permit me to assist.

I have comprehensive access to the Westlaw legal research service. The service provides effectively every court and administrative law ruling made in any US jurisdiction since the founding of each state and federal jurisdiction.

The term "tarkay" appears nowhere in conjunction with Washington, catfish, bait, or excise tax. However, there is one case that appears consistent with the general tenor of your request, and the business entity is called "Targhee," which is phonetically similar to "Tarkey." That case is:

NELSON-RICKS CREAMERY CO. v. U.S., 634 F.2d 566 (1980)

 

 

The case discusses excise taxes on fish bait, so I'm pretty sure this is the case you're requesting.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
