Spring in full bloom Jim Herbison’s roses were in full bloom at this field at 1301 Haggard Lane in Denton in late April. The field contains some 240 hybrid tea roses. After entering the Dallas Rose Society’s spring show, Herbison cuts the roses and donates them to nursing homes in the area and to elderly members of his church.

REAL ESTATE SHOWCASE

Energy rebates return with sales tax holiday The 2011 ENERGY STAR sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. (after midnight) on Saturday, May 28, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day). The products qualifying for the exemption are: Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less Ceiling fans Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs Clothes washers* Dishwashers Dehumidifiers Programmable thermostats** * Because most dryers use similar amounts of energy, ENERGY STAR does not label clothes dryers. ** ENERGY STAR specification of programmable thermostats was suspended on December 31, 2009; however, any existing stock of ENERGY STAR labeled programmable thermostats offered for sale by retailers is still eligible for the exemption. Qualifying products will display the ENERGY STAR logo, which may appear on the appliance, the packaging or the Energy Guide label. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. Earning the ENERGY STAR means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by these two federal agencies. There is no limit on the number of qualifying items one can purchase during this sales tax holiday, and an exemption certificate is not required.

Internet and Catalog Sales The tax-free holiday also applies to Internet and catalog sales of eligible products, provided that (1) the item is paid for and delivered to the purchaser during the exemption period; or (2) the purchaser orders and pays for the item and the retailer accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period. Layaway Plans Layaway plans can be used to take advantage of the sales tax holiday. Layaway sales of eligible products qualify for the exemption when either the final payment on a layaway order is made and the merchandise is given to the customer during the exemption period, or the item is selected by the customer and the order is accepted into layaway by the retailer during the exemption period for immediate delivery upon full payment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period. Delivery Charges Delivery, shipping, handling or transportation charges connected to the sale of a qualifying item purchased tax free during the sales tax holiday also qualify for the exemption. Such charges are included as part of the sales price of qualifying products sold during the holiday whether separately stated or not. For example, assume a retailer sells an ENERGY STAR-rated dishwasher taxfree during the sales tax holiday and charges the customer an additional fee for delivery. The entire amount billed to the customer for the purchase and delivery of the qualifying appliance is exempt from tax.
