I was hoping to see chainsaw on the qualified list. IT'S NOT.
My newest saw is probably ten years old.
My best one is older.

Wait til the a holes start taxing the air we breath. A tax for clean air to breath in and a surcharge on what we exhale as polution.

Would be cheaper for the state to just send $1000 to everyone whose house flooded. This is either a lame attempt for state government officials to look like they care or there is some other reason for the tax break.

Pretty sure this only applied to small purchases.

But this could have just been store policy.
