Got to be fucking kidding me. Denton CAD came back up. House values showing N/A. Fuck me. :rofl::wtc:
Oh, nice!

I thought Collin county was doing bad to have lost one of my bathrooms last year. Good to hear Denton county is doing a "hold my beer" and losing whole houses. :hahano::hahano::hahano:

EMERGENCY PREPARATION SUPPLIES SALES TAX HOLIDAY​

April 23 – 25, 2022​

Natural disasters will continue to happen. Prepare yourself during the 2022 Emergency Preparation Supplies Sales Tax Holiday for emergencies that can cause physical damage like hurricanes, flash floods and wildfires. You can purchase certain emergency preparation supplies tax free during the sales tax holiday. There is no limit on the number of qualifying items you can purchase, and you do not need to give an exemption certificate to claim the exemption.
This year’s holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 23, and ends at midnight on Monday, April 25.

These emergency preparation supplies qualify for tax exemption if purchased for a sales price:​

  • Less than $3000
    • Portable generators
  • Less than $300
    • Emergency ladders
    • Hurricane shutters
  • Less than $75
    • Axes
    • Batteries, single or multipack (AAA cell, AA cell, C cell, D cell, 6 volt or 9 volt)
    • Can openers - nonelectric
    • Carbon monoxide detectors
    • Coolers and ice chests for food storage – nonelectric
    • Fire extinguishers
    • First aid kits
    • Fuel containers
    • Ground anchor systems and tie-down kits
    • Hatchets
    • Ice products - reusable and artificial
    • Light sources - portable self-powered (including battery operated)
      • Examples of items include: candles, flashlights and lanterns
    • Mobile telephone batteries and mobile telephone chargers
    • Radios - portable self-powered (including battery operated) - includes two-way and weather band radios
    • Smoke detectors
    • Tarps and other plastic sheeting
Note: Several over-the-counter self-care items, such as antibacterial hand sanitizer, soap, spray and wipes, are always exempt from sales tax if they are labeled with a "Drug Facts" panel in accordance with federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.

These supplies do not qualify for tax exemption:​

  • Medical masks and face masks
  • Cleaning supplies, such as disinfectants and bleach wipes
  • Gloves, including leather, fabric, latex and types used in healthcare
  • Toilet paper
  • Batteries for automobiles, boats and other motorized vehicles
  • Camping stoves
  • Camping supplies
  • Chainsaws
  • Plywood
  • Extension ladders
  • Stepladders
  • Tents
  • Repair or replacement parts for emergency preparation supplies
  • Services performed on, or related to, emergency preparation supplies

Online Purchases and Telephone Orders​

During the holiday you can buy qualifying emergency preparation supplies in-store, online, by telephone, mail, custom order, or any other means. The sale of the item must take place during the specific period. The purchase date is easy to determine when the purchase is made in-store but becomes more complicated with remote purchases. The purchaser must have given the consideration for the item during the period even if the item may not be delivered until after the period is over.
For example, if a purchaser enters their credit card information in an online shopping website on Monday April 25, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.to purchase a qualifying generator, but the generator will not be shipped until Friday April 29, 2022 and will not arrive until Tuesday May 3, the purchase will still qualify for the exemption. However, if the charge to credit card is declined by the payment processor at 11:00 p.m. on Monday April 25, 2022 and the purchaser does not resubmit payment until Tuesday April 26, the purchase is taxable.

Additional Charges Affect the Sales Price​

Delivery, shipping, handling and transportation charges are part of the sales price. If the emergency preparation supply being purchased is taxable, the delivery charge is also taxable. Consider these charges when determining whether an emergency preparation supply can be purchased tax free during the holiday.
For example, you purchase a rescue ladder for $299 with a $10 delivery charge, for a total sales price of $309. Because the total sales price of the ladder is more than $300, tax is due on the $309 sales price.

Sales Tax Holiday Refund Requests​

Purchasers can buy certain emergency preparation supplies tax free during the annual Texas Emergency Supplies Sales Tax Holiday. If you pay sales tax on these items during the sales tax holiday, you can ask the seller for a refund of the tax paid. The seller can either grant the refund or provide their customer with Form 00-985, Assignment of Right to Refund (PDF) that allows the purchaser to file the refund claim directly with the Comptroller's office.
Should you have additional questions about refund requests, please contact us at 800-531-5441, ext. 34545, or visit our Sales Tax Refunds web page for further details on filing a refund claim.
For more information, contact us at Tax Help, or call 1-800-252-5555.

So I take it there’s really no reason to protest an appraisal when it came in like +28% right (homestead)? Even if it came down it still would cap at +10% so I doubt it would even approach that

My dad has appealed his appraisal a number of times, but usually it doesn't result in much if anything.

One year he appealed and "won" because they lowered the valuation of the physical improvement by $X, and raised the land valuation $X amount at the same time.

apparently when the new guy (who is not in a leadership position) tries to make an impression and calls a meeting to tell everyone how thing are going to be, things get "tense" when you chime in and ask your VP.....

"so, [name] basically said my job, in addition to all the other work i do already, is to also do his job while he does.....we don't know.......and his job is apparently easy, but my question is....do i get paid to do his job in addition to my own because I could really use a 4000 sq ft house and a pool"

I've been having issues with a guy whose way of helping is to go find a random readme in a code repo and say "read this"


I have started referring to him as "Bing" because he's a shittier form of Google.

This guy has been on our team for 6 months working on a word document about backup plans

Keep in mind my team was given several company awards and mentioned in the New York Times regarding improvements in a particular business space so it’s not like we suck

I’m 99% sure he fabricated his work history at this point because nobody has any idea what he’s been doing

Even the girl who is supposed to be learning from him admits she never talks to our meets with him
How does that happen? What does his manager check on?
