Texas Sales Tax on RV Trades

25 February 2015 - 12:27 PM

On an RV trade in, does Texas charge sales tax on the full amount of the RV being purchased or on the difference in value of the new one less the old one?


If it is based on the difference, does anyone know how closely the buy and sell have to be linked?  Do they truly have to occur in the same place on the same day or can you sell in one place and some days later (and how many) buy at another place and still only be charged sales tax on the difference?

Not a recipe, but being a native Hoosier the following article about the best 10 places to get a Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich sure brought a watering of the mouth.   http://www.seriousea...es-midwest.html




Setting Up New Computer

16 January 2015 - 08:30 AM

I seem to recall a thread that gave instructions and tips for setting up a new computer, but I have searched for that thread and can't seem to find it.  Does anyone remember it and would point me to it.  Thanks.

Always A Flange On The Power Post

07 November 2014 - 08:49 AM

We have a very standard 50 amp shore power cord with the blades in the plug configured at a right angle to the cord..  Almost inevitably, there is a flange of some sort on the breaker box right below the receptacle.  The flange is a direct interference and does not allow the plug to enter the receptacle fully.  I have thought it could be good to have some kind of extension but then I would be plugging into a plug which doesn't seem a good thing and I haven't seen such an extension anyway.  I have on occasion when the flange is a straight plastic edge deployed the nippers to cut out a small section so it doesn't interfere but metal boxes are more common.  Does  anyone have  a solution for this matter, or am I the only one who doesn't like it that my plug rarely can fully enter the receptacle?
