re: Estate planning for my parents - txtiger79
They just need wills since not reaching the estate tax thresholds. I think only reason for a trust would be if you and your sibs meet estate tax limits and you or your parents want their estate to pass directly to any young grandkids. But that would be a trust that is set up at their deaths rather t...

re: Stock Question...company took out stock granted to my wife to pay taxes - txtiger79
The value of the stock will show up as income on her W2 and the stock they sold will show up as withholding. From here on out, you will be taxed when you sell the remaining shares as capital gains. ...

Looking for a Breckinridge CO summer rental - txtiger79
Anyone have recommendations for a summer home rental in Breckenridge? Looking for about a week's stay and a great house that comfortably fits 14-15 people. I will take general tips on which area to stay in or if you've had a good experience and want to recommend a specific home or rental agency....

re: Tell Me About Ally Bank - txtiger79
FDIC insurance limits may play a role for some. Also, while the risk to savings deposits is somewhat remote, diversifying banks is never a bad idea. Regarding credit cards, I don't have any loyalty between who stores my cash and whose cards I use. I'm after points/rewards all day everyday for m...

re: Tell Me About Ally Bank - txtiger79
Assuming you mean capital one 360, totally agree. I use both ally and 360 for extra cash. No complaints. I especially like that ally doesn't charge for incoming wire transfers. ...

re: Linn Energy Question - txtiger79
If you want to dabble in it, buy LinnCo. Same company with the shares structured as a c-corp. They recently allowed the MLP unit holders to swap into LinnCo to avoid the MLP tax ramifications of forgiven debt income allocations. I'm not suggesting you play in it, but there is an alternative to the M...

I've had extra cash in cd's and a savings account there for about 5 years. I think I'm gonna move my checking over too. My wells account pays me about 0.05% so kind of dumb to keep much extra cash there instead of ally. ...

re: International Travel - Phone Question - txtiger79
The international plans by AT&T generally suck for data and that's what I need most when I travel. I generally get a local SIM card with a lot of data. Allows me to use google maps etc which I find very helpful when I'm wandering the streets lost in Europe. Also you can tether to your laptop for dat...

re: Traveling parents...tell me about flying with my kid. - txtiger79
Consider calling united and making sure the row you are in has an extra oxygen mask. I think some of those small planes only have extra masks in certain rows. If you don't call, they will make sure to reseat you in an appropriate row anyway. Try to feed your kid when taking off. Provides a distr...
