I live in AZ and someone gave me some gorgeous tulips in the month of February. Here in AZ, winter isn't the same thing as winter back east. Are they winter tulips and do they need to be stored during our summer? if so, how?
They should stay in the ground during the summer (they like hot, dry soil in the summer) but they do need to be chilled in the winter. In the fall, dig them up and store them in the vegetable drawer of a fridge for at least 6 weeks. Then you can plant them back out again.
Due to a property being re-landscaped, I have been given the opportunity of acquiring the tulips that must be moved. The job will take place before the tulips have bloomed. They are about eight inches tall right now. What is the best way to move them with the least amount of damage to the plant?

I have some lovely 'Daydreamer Tulips. ' They have been doing very well for several years. I order and replant new ones every other year. This last year the older beds only grew foliage. Can I dig these up and transplant them so they will bloom again? Or are they done?
Tulips are hard to get to bloom year after year. You can get them to do it in the right conditions. This article will help with that:

Can I transplant tulips that have already bloomed?

I planted 80 tulip bulbs two falls ago and last spring all 80 came up and flowered. It's full sun and moderately well drained. I left the foliage until it browned and pulled it off. This spring, about 60 plants produced one or more leaves and only 7 out of the original 80 produced a bloom. I know tulips don't last forever, but I was hoping for more than one good season. If I dig the bulbs up this year and replant in the fall, where is the best place to store them over the summer (basement, garage or fridge), and is it even likely that they will bloom better next year. I live in the Northern Kentucky area and the bulbs came from Lowe's.
You can store them for the summer and replant them in the fall. Place in a warm, dry place for the summer, preferably a garage. They need a little warmth over summer to form blossoms. Storing them in a paper bag or in newspaper will help to wick away harmful moisture.
