North Texas Tea Party and Conservative Grassroots Groups Join Together for Lone Star Tea Party Tax Day Rally April 15, 2010


Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 8, 2010

An unprecedented coalition of Metroplex conservative grassroots and tea party groups will join together to host the Lone Star Tea Party Tax Day Rally on April 15, 2010. To date, twenty-four area groups are actively participating in the event, which will be held at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The Lone Star Tea Party is a non-partisan event connecting friends and neighbors who are fed up with the direction this country is headed, want to preserve the U.S. Constitution and limit the government to the powers granted therein. In addition to both local and nationally known speakers, the rally will feature the Postcard from Texas, a 50-foot-long banner on which participants may write a personal message to Washington. The postcard will be hand delivered to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The emcee for the event will be Mark Davis of WBAP, the highest rated talk radio host in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Mark Davis will be joined by Mike Gallagher of KSKY and Jeff Bolton of KLIF.

"This is the first major organized event whereby a majority of local tea party and 912 groups have come together to be united in North Texas," said Mel Moss, President, Arlington Tea Party, Inc. "The mo-mentum of the tea parties continues to grow as people become more frustrated with elected politicians and special interest groups."

"We are excited Mark Davis is hosting our event, and we know the people of Texas will benefit from hearing his views on individual liberties, freedom and the Constitution," said Kaaren Teuber, a leader of the grassroots group Texoma Patriots. "The recent back room deals and arrogance in Washington that rammed the Health Care bill down the throats of the American people will result in layoffs, cutbacks in benefits, and rationed healthcare. We must unite together, speak with a single voice, and change the direction of this country."

"Our elected officials can't continue to ignore the wishes of the people and expect us to forget come election day," said Ken Emanuelson, a member of the Steering Committee for Dallas Tea Party "This rally is a golden opportunity for our movement to build our collective membership base and come together to make our voices heard."

SourceHOV | Tax Applauds Texas Initiative to Reinstate the Research & Development Tax Credit


Ft. Worth, Texas (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

After several years without a Research & Development Tax Credit, on May 2, 2013, the House approved HB 800 introduced by Texas State Representative Jim Murphy. The bill authorizes $ 250 million in sales and franchise tax credits for companies pursuing qualified research & development in Texas. According to Texans for Innovation, this could bring $ 13 billion into the economy and add 97,000 new jobs.

Texas originally approved an R&D Tax Credit in 1999 that was set to sunset at the end of tax year 2009. However in 2005, the Supreme Court of Texas mandated that the Legislature reform the states public school finance system. The Governor appointed a former Comptroller of Public Accounts to lead the Texas Tax Reform Commission to develop a proposal to provide a stable finance mechanism for public schools in Texas.

The commission proposed a large overhaul of the franchise tax that included eliminating the tax credit for R&D expenses. The enactment of House Bill 3 in 2006 effectively eliminated a companys ability to qualify for research tax credits after December 31, 2007. While taxpayers were no longer able to earn R&D tax credits, they were still allowed to claim unused credits from prior years until December 31, 2027.

We are excited to see that Texas is re-evaluating the benefits of a research credit. By incentivizing businesses in the form of research credits they will be promoting innovation and adding more high level jobs to the recovering Texas economy, commented Deb Roth, CPA and Managing Director at SourceHOV | Tax. Many manufacturing, software, engineering and high-tech companies rely on these types of incentives to continue to grow their business.

Software companies throughout the state are looking forward to maintaining business in Texas and with this additional incentive they will have the opportunity to continue to grow and stay competitive, mentioned Michael Warady, CFP and National Director of R&D Software Consulting at SourceHOV | Tax. In speaking with software companies outside the state that are considering a move to Texas, this incentive provides additional motivation to relocate.

The bill is now in the hands of the Texas Senate. We are waiting confirmation that the bill passed the Senate in a vote on May 21, 2013.

SourceHOV |Tax is a national leader in Research & Development tax credit consulting services. For more than 30 years, SourceHOV | Tax has helped companies properly identify and sustain tax incentive strategies for its clients, including R&D tax credits, cost segregation studies, 179D tax deductions and LIFO inventory accounting.

A PC So Tough It Should Have Been Born in Texas, a Flatmate for Geeks, & the Twist Revived: Parts-People Releases Fun Tech Articles


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

Parts-People.com is making "Geek" fun with things that make people say "Wow", as it publishes entertaining Tech News Articles by Paul B. Wordman spanning three tongue-in-cheek subjects.

One of those smile-provoking Technology Articles focuses on a computer tough enough to survive "a close encounter of the pickup truck kind", and manages to quote a popular newcomer's bumper-sticker which simply says: I wasnt born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could. That article replaces the usual specifications table with a list of "Toughications & Features".

Another fun-inducing article posted on Parts-People.com covers a "Flatmate" that helps geeks stuff it when uptight and short of space. The article explains that this is a "Flatmate" that never complains when told to stay out of the way, stand straight, and keep its back against the wall.

Yet another humor-generating Technology News Article on the Parts-People website discusses how two convertible laptop-tablets "Revive a Classic Dance: The Twist," with their "Urge to Merge." The article's Assessment sums up the "State of the Union" with the observation that: "Convergence by any other name would still be a primary technology trend."

About Parts-People.com

The online store at Parts-People.com provides refurbished laptops for buyers who prefer a familiar operating system (OS) on hardware with a demonstrated package of drivers.

The company is continually increasing parts inventory of wholesale Dell laptop parts in Austins growing technology hub. Parts-People.com now stocks more than 250,000 notebook replacement parts physically in-house, on-site, and ready to ship the same business day.

The Parts-People website serves a large number of businesses, school districts, government agencies, non-profits, and individual consumers that cannot, or will not make eBay purchases for various reasons. The technical staff is a team of experts trained to work only on Dell products; a significant reason that individuals and organizations order replacement parts or ship their laptops to Parts-People, from all over the world, for service or repair.

Established in 2002 as a start-up, entrepreneurial, family-owned business, the companys rapid growth in 2003 became the incentive to consolidate operations in 14,000 square-feet of mixed retail, warehouse, and office space.
