Mark Twain Boy, have I had a humdinger of a weekend. Bright and early Saturday morning I tackled one of the most dreaded jobs around the house. I dont know about you, but I sure can put off cleaning out our freezer for a good long time. Not that Im a procrastinator or anything like that, I just tend to put things off a bit. Yep, there sure was a lot of caked up ice to scrape through and lots of surprises in the old freezer. Luckily we have a small freezer out in the garage that I could move the inside freezer food to while I cleaned it out. The only problem was that the small freezer in the garage had to be cleaned out some before a single package of inside food could be moved. Years ago John laid claim to the outside freezer and frankly I dont even lift the lid. In fact, to tell you the truth, Im a little afraid to see what all resides in that freezer. But, truly it wasnt too bad after removing two big plastic buckets of ice he had trip. I got down to a couple boxes of thawed. Then I found several packknows just how old it is because my guy doesnt date freezer bags. After At that point I decided it was time to quit exploring Johns freezer because there was enough room to store the frozen food from the inside freezer and thus far I had not uncovered anything covered in fur. Time to stop while I was still ahead. But, as you might guess several garbage bags of not so good stuff was hauled away from the inside freezer also. After the work was done we now have several bags of last springs acre peas, a couple bags of butter beans, several packages of grouper and a couple packs of venison neatly tucked back into a very clean freezer. Funny how bad I dreaded this job and how it makes me smile to open the almost brand new. As you might guess, there is a reason for the big clean out. There is half of a locally-raised cow heading our way this weekend. Let me tell you, I am some kind of excited about the prospect of cooking this beef. Last night, I went to sleep with images of grilled steaks, tender roast, and beef liver, dancing through my head. It really does not take much to make a country woman happy. A cleaned out freezer soon to be full of beef, that was raised with a great deal of care by a dear friends, and her family, does it for me. Life is so sweet. It doesnt seem like many people are interested in my recipe for fried beef liver smothered in onion gravy served over a mound of stone ground grits these days, so Ill pass on that recipe and move on to a very simple recipe that most people would like. Who pray tell, does not like a good steak?Black Pepper Steak2 rib-eye steaks about 1 to 1 thick Salt Garlic powder 3 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup chopped green onions Fresh ground black pepper Sprinkle both sides of steak with garlic powder and salt, set aside. Let the steaks come to room temperature. Melt the butter in a cast iron frying pan over medium heat, add the olive oil. Add green onions and cook, stirring until the onions are tender. Remove the onions and set aside. Add cracked pepper to one side of steaks, pressing pepper into steak with palm of your hand and place it in hot pan pepper side down. Sprinkle top side of steak with pepper. Cook the steaks for about 5 minutes per side or till desired oneness. Remove steaks and sprinkle green onions over them and serve. Johns CommentsBy John M.

Dear Editor, The art of lying is not unique to politicians of any political party. Many people believe most politicians lie most of the time. Thats probably not correct, however, what may be closer to the truth is some politicians lie most of the time. These are the easy ones to spot as they choke on the truth if they ever attempt to speak it. Many of our politicians in Washington have recently taken lying to a new level regarding several national issues. The Affordable Care Act, Bengazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of US citizens, and the latest NSA spying scandal are all examples of our government out of control. If you hadnt heard, good honorable Americans died over several of these occurrences and their families and we Americans are still awaiting answers. Shameful. It all reminds me of another politician, William Jefferson Big Dawg Clinton, lying under oath for which he lost his license to practice law. Additionally, he faced an impeachment trial for perjury and obstruction of justice. Politicians and lying, some things never change because we Americans do not hold the things they say and do (or dont do) as long as they just keep giving us folks more free stuff. Yes, Virginia, it is true, there really are millions of Americans who actually believe it is all free. Thank you and a tip of the hat to our career, self-serving, anything for a vote, politicians. Yikes!! Jon Gray Bell I want to thank Alan Lott for stopping by the Gilchrist County Journal last week and sharing with us several heads of his tasty and beautiful Alan explained that he planted this variety in September 2013 when he planted his fall garden, right along side his broccoli. Alan said his granddaughter has really enjoyed the brocjust begun to head up as well. time to mature, but it is well worth it when you get to eat it, Alan explained. Cindy Jo has been growing broccoli and carrots with the grandchildren now for some time. Gus and Allie Claire love eating the fresh vegetables and learning about the garden. It is nearing springtime and soon the bees will be buzzing and the warm weather will have everything around here in a growing spree. I look forward to springtime, as the water will its best. Letters to the Editor ank youDear Editor, We at Gilchrist Trucking would like to thank the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce for choosing us as the Business of the Year.

So, every guy who has had a remote in his hand had no excuse not to remember his Valentine! I so hope you remembered to cherish your girl. As I write this column just a few days before Valentines Day, my husband and I are getting ready to go out of town for a marriage retreat for Valentines weekend. One thing that we have learned during our 25+ years of marriage is that we still have a lot to learn! It seems about the time we think we have some things the season of life we are in changes. do we do about this? About a month ago, we packed up our third born and moved her away to college. First girl out of the nest. Needless to say, it was tough. I dont know any other way to describe it but homesick. I was sick for her to be home. But at the same time, I want her to step out, experience life and get an education. All my emotions were looked up, I decided that I was mad at my husband. Anybody? I know there is no rhyme or reason to explain this, but truth be told, I believe he was also a little aggravated at me for letting her grow up. Needless to say, we had needed to be. And we grew stronger because of the experience. reaction to the curves of life is to push each other away, when what we need most is to come together. In Genesis good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. I cant help but think if God had left man alone, he would never have found anything. Cant you just hear leaf? A funny thought, but I think we miss Gods intention if we read into this verse the idea that a helper is someone of inferior status or skill just helping out or being an assistant. According to Bible scholar Joseph Coleson, in our English language, a helper refers to someone who assists the master tradesman, such helper. However, in the Hebrew Scriptures, it means just the opposite. as helper and it usually refers to God the Helper and Rescuer of those who cannot help themselves. In the context of this verse, helper means that God intended to make someone who would rescue Adam from solitude. It was not good for Adam to be alone, but that was not a problem he could so God designed one in His image. Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible supports this interpretation. So here we are learning something new! Your wife is much more than just your helper; she is the one who rescued you from solitude. Honor and cherish her as your life long partner and watch God bless your marriage!

Page Ten THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY INFORMATIONThis form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate and timely tax return.Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal PropertyWhat is Tangible Personal Property? A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances, signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn income. Who must file? A. Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who lease, lend or rent property must also file. Why must I file a return? A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way, the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your obligation to file. How can I obtain this form? A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the Property Appraiser's Office. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a return? A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out items 1 through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation of why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and rental units have some assets to report even if it is only supplies, rented equipment or household goods. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return? A. Yes, if you were not in business on January 1 of the taxing year, follow this procedure: 1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and the manner in which you disposed of your business assets. Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them. 2) Sign and date the return. 3) Have your signature notarized. 4) Mail the return back to this office. What is an office or field review assessment? A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents an estimate based on the value of business with similar equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your responsibility to file an accurate return. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in August of each year? A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the opportunity to review all the pertinent facts. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS* File the original return with this office (with name and account number preprinted), as soon as possible before April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return. Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any equipment that may have been "Physically Removed". List those items in the appropriate space on your return. If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your complete return. Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as last year". It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of assets since depreciation on each item may vary. Please include your estimate of fair market value and the original cost of the item on your return. They are important considerations in determining an accurate assessment. Additional information regarding filing is provided in the instructional section of the return itself. If you sell your business, go out of business, or move to a new location, please inform this office. It will enable us to keep timely, accurate records. To inquire for more information about Tangible Personal Property please contact:Damon C. Leggett Gilchrist County Property Appraiser112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is responsible for the taxes? A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January 1 would be responsible for the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to avoid problems in this area.Q. What if I receive more than one tax return? A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return. Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and written off the books? A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported. Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are provided in the rent? A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed for informational purposes. Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report? A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must be filed on all assets by April 1. Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to file a tangible personal property tax return? A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature, you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal property included in the rental unit. Q. Are there deadlines and penalties? A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO RETURN IS FILED. $25,000 Tangible Personal Property Exemption In order to receive this new exemption, you must file a Tangible Personal Property Return by April 1, unless an exemption has been granted. Tangible Property Return shall be considered an application for the exemption and will be applied to the first $25,000 of assessed value for the TPP account.

Mark Twain Boy, have I had a humdinger of a weekend. Bright and early Saturday morning I tackled one of the most dreaded jobs around the house. I dont know about you, but I sure can put off cleaning out our freezer for a good long time. Not that Im a pro crastinator or anything like that, I just tend to put things off a bit. Yep, there sure was a lot of caked up ice to scrape through and lots of surprises in the old freezer. Luckily we have a small freezer out in the garage that I could move the inside freezer food to while I cleaned it out. The only problem was that the small freezer in the garage had to be cleaned out some before a single package of inside food could be moved. Years ago John laid claim to the outside freezer and frankly I dont even lift the lid. In fact, to tell you the truth, Im a little afraid to see what all resides in that freezer. But, truly it wasnt too bad after removing two big plastic buckets of ice he had trip. I got down to a couple boxes of thawed. Then I found several pack knows just how old it is because my guy doesnt date freezer bags. After At that point I decided it was time to quit exploring Johns freezer be cause there was enough room to store the frozen food from the inside freez er and thus far I had not uncovered anything covered in fur. Time to stop while I was still ahead. But, as you might guess several garbage bags of not so good stuff was hauled away from the inside freezer also. After the work was done we now have several bags of last springs acre peas, a couple bags of butter beans, several packages of grouper and a couple packs of venison neatly tucked back into a very clean freezer. Funny how bad I dreaded this job and how it makes me smile to open the almost brand new. As you might guess, there is a rea son for the big clean out. There is half of a locally-raised cow heading our way this weekend. Let me tell you, I am some kind of excited about the prospect of cooking this beef. Last night, I went to sleep with images of grilled steaks, tender roast, and beef liver, dancing through my head. It really does not take much to make a country woman happy. A cleaned out freezer soon to be full of beef, that was raised with a great deal of care by a dear friends, and her family, does it for me. Life is so sweet. It doesnt seem like many people are interested in my recipe for fried beef liver smothered in onion gravy served over a mound of stone ground grits these days, so Ill pass on that recipe and move on to a very simple recipe that most people would like. Who pray tell, does not like a good steak? Black Pepper Steak 2 rib-eye steaks about 1 to 1 thick Salt Garlic powder 3 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup chopped green onions Fresh ground black pepper Sprinkle both sides of steak with garlic powder and salt, set aside. Let the steaks come to room tempera ture. Melt the butter in a cast iron frying pan over medium heat, add the olive oil. Add green onions and cook, stir ring until the onions are tender. Re move the onions and set aside. Add cracked pepper to one side of steaks, pressing pepper into steak with palm of your hand and place it in hot pan pepper side down. Sprinkle top side of steak with pepper. Cook the steaks for about 5 minutes per side or till desired oneness. Remove steaks and sprinkle green onions over them and serve. Johns Comments By John M.

Dear Editor, The art of lying is not unique to politicians of any political party. Many people believe most politicians lie most of the time. Thats probably not correct, however, what may be closer to the truth is some politicians lie most of the time. These are the easy ones to spot as they choke on the truth if they ever attempt to speak it. Many of our politicians in Washington have recently taken lying to a new level regarding several national issues. The Affordable Care Act, Bengazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of US citizens, and the latest NSA spying scandal are all examples of our government out of control. If you hadnt heard, good honorable Americans died over several of these occurrences and their families and we Americans are still awaiting answers. Shameful. It all reminds me of another politician, William Jefferson Big Dawg Clinton, lying under oath for which he lost his license to practice law. Additionally, he faced an impeachment trial for perjury and obstruction of justice. Politicians and lying, some things never change because we Americans do not hold the things they say and do (or dont do) as long as they just keep giving us folks more free stuff. Yes, Virginia, it is true, there really are millions of Americans who actually believe it is all free. Thank you and a tip of the hat to our career, self-serving, anything for a vote, politicians. Yikes!! Jon Gray Bell I want to thank Alan Lott for stop ping by the Gilchrist County Journal last week and sharing with us sev eral heads of his tasty and beautiful Alan explained that he planted this variety in September 2013 when he planted his fall garden, right along side his broccoli. Alan said his grand daughter has really enjoyed the broc just begun to head up as well. time to mature, but it is well worth it when you get to eat it, Alan ex plained. Cindy Jo has been growing brocco li and carrots with the grandchildren now for some time. Gus and Allie Claire love eating the fresh vegeta bles and learning about the garden. It is nearing springtime and soon the bees will be buzzing and the warm weather will have everything around here in a growing spree. I look for ward to springtime, as the water will its best. Letters to the Editor ank you Dear Editor, We at Gilchrist Trucking would like to thank the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce for choosing us as the Business of the Year. It is truly an honor to be chosen for this award. It was made possible not only by ourselves, but also our dedicated em ployees, loyal customers, vendors who helped us through the rough times, friends who offered and gave good help and advice, and a great community, in which we are blessed to live and work.

So, every guy who has had a remote in his hand had no excuse not to remember his Valentine! I so hope you remembered to cherish your girl. As I write this column just a few days before Valentines Day, my husband and I are getting ready to go out of town for a marriage retreat for Valentines weekend. One thing that we have learned during our 25+ years of marriage is that we still have a lot to learn! It seems about the time we think we have some things the season of life we are in changes. do we do about this? About a month ago, we packed up our third born and moved her away to college. First girl out of the nest. Needless to say, it was tough. I dont know any other way to describe it but homesick. I was sick for her to be home. But at the same time, I want her to step out, experience life and get an education. All my emotions were looked up, I decided that I was mad at my husband. Anybody? I know there is no rhyme or reason to explain this, but truth be told, I believe he was also a little aggravated at me for letting her grow up. Needless to say, we had needed to be. And we grew stronger because of the experience. reaction to the curves of life is to push each other away, when what we need most is to come together. In Genesis good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. I cant help but think if God had left man alone, he would never have found anything. Cant you just hear leaf? A funny thought, but I think we miss Gods intention if we read into this verse the idea that a helper is someone of inferior status or skill just helping out or being an assistant. According to Bible scholar Joseph Coleson, in our English language, a helper refers to someone who assists the master tradesman, such helper. However, in the Hebrew Scriptures, it means just the opposite. as helper and it usually refers to God the Helper and Rescuer of those who cannot help themselves. In the context of this verse, helper means that God intended to make someone who would rescue Adam from solitude. It was not good for Adam to be alone, but that was not a problem he could so God designed one in His image. Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible supports this interpretation. So here we are learning something new! Your wife is much more than just your helper; she is the one who rescued you from solitude. Honor and cherish her as your life long partner and watch God bless your marriage! Because Every Heart Matters!

Page Ten THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY INFORMATION This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate and timely tax return. Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property What is Tangible Personal Property? A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances, signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn income. Who must file? A. Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who lease, lend or rent property must also file. Why must I file a return? A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way, the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your obligation to file. How can I obtain this form? A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the Property Appraiser's Office. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a return? A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out items 1 through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation of why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and rental units have some assets to report even if it is only supplies, rented equipment or household goods. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return? A. Yes, if you were not in business on January 1 of the taxing year, follow this procedure: 1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and the manner in which you disposed of your business assets. Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them. 2) Sign and date the return. 3) Have your signature notarized. 4) Mail the return back to this office. What is an office or field review assessment? A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents an estimate based on the value of business with similar equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your responsibility to file an accurate return. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in August of each year? A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the opportunity to review all the pertinent facts. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS File the original return with this office (with name and account number preprinted), as soon as possible before April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return. Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any equipment that may have been "Physically Removed". List those items in the appropriate space on your return. If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your complete return. Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as last year". It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of assets since depreciation on each item may vary. Please include your estimate of fair market value and the original cost of the item on your return. They are important considerations in determining an accurate assessment. Additional information regarding filing is provided in the instructional section of the return itself. If you sell your business, go out of business, or move to a new location, please inform this office. It will enable us to keep timely, accurate records. To inquire for more information about Tangible Personal Property please contact: Damon C. Leggett Gilchrist County Property Appraiser 112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693 (352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208 Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is responsible for the taxes? A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January 1 would be responsible for the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to avoid problems in this area. Q. What if I receive more than one tax return? A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return. Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and written off the books? A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported. Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are provided in the rent? A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed for informational purposes. Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report? A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must be filed on all assets by April 1. Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to file a tangible personal property tax return? A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature, you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal property included in the rental unit. Q. Are there deadlines and penalties? A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO RETURN IS FILED. $25,000 Tangible Personal Property Exemption In order to receive this new exemption, you must file a Tangible Personal Property Return by April 1, unless an exemption has been granted. Tangible Property Return shall be considered an application for the exemption and will be applied to the first $25,000 of assessed value for the TPP account.
