| Money Talk|| Education Tax Credit/Deduction Question - TakingStock on 12/20/14 at 4:45 pm|
What tax credits/deductions are available for two people who are married and file a joint tax return, when both have over $10,000 in qualified educational expenses in a given year?
I believe the $2,000 Lifetime Learning Credit only applies once per tax return, but are there other options since b...
| Tech Board|| Can't Access Certain Websites After Power Outage? - TakingStock on 6/23/14 at 6:12 am|
Power went out yesterday during a storm. While everything was back up and running an hour later, I noticed that I was unable to connect to certain websites on any of my Internet browsers (Safari & Chrome included). I'm on a Mac and tried pinging the sites to no avail - the request was timed out. I t...

Power went out this afternoon during a storm. While everything was back up and running an hour later, I noticed that I'm unable to connect to certain websites on any of my Internet browsers (Safari & Chrome included). I'm on a Mac and tried pinging the sites to no avail - the request was timed out.
| O-T Lounge|| Pure Michigan Commercials - TakingStock on 6/9/14 at 8:26 pm|
Regardless of how the state really is, Detroit, etc., are the Pure Michigan commercials the best travel commercials on TV? I've never been to the state, but the beautiful landscapes coupled with the musical score and Tim Allen's voice over are awfully convincing. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Alex Bregman's 2015 Draft Stock? - TakingStock on 4/6/14 at 9:10 pm|
Obviously it's far out, but I'm curious to hear the Rant's take on where Bregman will go in the 2015 Draft. At the end of last year, some services were saying he would be a top 15 pick in 2015.
I'm trying not too put too much stock in this season just yet because I'd like to see his final numbers...
| O-T Lounge|| Accidentally Left Groceries in Car Overnight - TakingStock on 2/28/14 at 10:38 am|
After running around to multiple stores last night, we pulled the car in the garage and forgot about our groceries in the trunk. We had a 2.25 lb beef roast and a 2 lb package of chicken breast in there. The garage was cold, probably around 35-40 degrees. When I pulled the groceries out this morning...
| Gaming Board|| NCAA 14 - PS3 Controls Question - TakingStock on 11/8/13 at 2:37 pm|
Can someone tell me why I continue to pitch the ball and wind up fumbling so much? For example, I'll return a punt or throw a pass and my receiver will be running in stride and then pitch the ball backwards. Am I accidentally hitting L3? I'm sure I'm pressing the button to pitch, but I can't seem to...

Is anyone else having issues accessing the Capital One Rewards website? I believe this website covers money market, checking and credit card miles. I've been getting an error message the past few days when trying to log on....
| O-T Lounge|| What is a "good" price to pay for cable & internet? - TakingStock on 5/10/13 at 7:07 pm|
I'm stuck with Charter right now and absolutely hate them. I'm paying roughly $130 for cable and Internet. The cable comes with 2 HD boxes and their standard channel lineup but I have not purchased any additional packages/services.
How much do you pay? $130 seems awfully high and I'd like to at...
| O-T Lounge|| Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers Radio Commercials - TakingStock on 4/21/13 at 10:17 pm|
Are these radio commercials intentionally annoying? Every time one comes on the radio, I feel like gouging my eyes out. I can't tell if they're trying to talk to us like we're dumb because they think it's a legit sales tactic or if they know they're really annoying and hope it sticks with people (wh...

I know this has been discussed before so m not the only one dealing with it.
My return has been listed on the LA Refund site as received for roughly 3 weeks now but the website says "processing not yet complete". Given their issues this year with processing, how long can I expect it to take to re...
| O-T Lounge|| Paypal Payment Scam? - TakingStock on 2/19/13 at 10:44 pm|
Has anyone ever had a fraudulent PayPal payment sent from their account? I was sitting here and got a legitimate email alert from PayPal that a payment had been sent from my account to a non-U.S. seller. The scary thing was, it wasn't a spoof and I never purchased anything from this bogus entity.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Houston Defense This Week? - TakingStock on 12/12/12 at 8:36 am|
I didn't have enough waiver money so someone grabbed Detroit's D for this week. I currently have Houston (vs. Indy) and Jets @ Tennessee. Miami (@ Jacksonville) is also available, as well as Cincy (@ Philly).
Should I stick with Houston and hope they have a bounce back game at home?...

| Money Talk|| Capital Gains Tax Question - TakingStock on 12/10/12 at 9:24 pm|
I've been buying and selling investments for years but I've always wondered how accurate you have to be on your tax returns if you've reinvested stock dividends for years and then sold your shares? I've done the legwork of calculating the specific share cost for each reinvested lot sold because I ha...
