| Money Talk|| EE Savings Bond Interest - The Goon on 3/30/14 at 10:04 pm|
I cashed in savings bonds in 2012 for a down payment for a house. I forgot to add the 1099 on my taxes and now the IRS wants taxes on the accumulated interest.
Is the interest considered capital gains for savings bonds? For 2012, I was in the 15% tax bracket and do not have to pay long term cap...

Since it's horizontal, it might be an axial flow pump with multiple stages or progressing cavity pump. It sounds like it is just for moving liquids at high pressure and flow rates.
Is there a diagram of the how the pump works?
