re: Will the markets tank if we go to war with North Korea? - UpstairsComputer on 12/4/17 at 8:11 am
[quote]tens of thousands of US deaths[/quote] I just can't see this happening. This is a brief conflict to topple the government mostly from air and navy forces at the outset. Beyond that, we aren't dealing with a potential pool of a billion terrorists to pull from for guerrilla warfare. R...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Investing ~90k today - UpstairsComputer on 10/23/17 at 10:26 am
There is always a possibility of a market decline coming up. Always. What is your time frame? If it's a year, cash, money markets, and CD's. If it's 30 years, and you're worried, use a moderate risk approach and switch to aggressive when your prophecy comes true....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Getting Out Of A Vehicle You Are Upside Down On? - UpstairsComputer on 10/23/17 at 10:22 am
[quote]keep the truck until it dies[/quote] Or this. What type of vehicle are you thinking you are getting? What's the difference in gas mileage? For example, if you're getting 20 mpg hwy now and you upgrade to 25 mpg, you'll save 6 gallons per week. Let's say it's $2.25/gal. You're savi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Getting Out Of A Vehicle You Are Upside Down On? - UpstairsComputer on 10/23/17 at 8:10 am
Don't think there is a good answer for you unfortunately... List the truck on Craigslist (or something similar) and see if you can get a buyer with a high price to see if you can get a little bit better than 22k, get a small personal loan from a bank to pay off the difference. Learn a valuable...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Question about consultant work (Tax/401k experts welcomed) - UpstairsComputer on 10/23/17 at 7:36 am
Yes, you can still set up an individual 401k for 2017. $18,000 plus 20-25% match depending on your corporate structure. Only if your wife actually does something for your company. Nothing for your daughter unless she has earned income - which isn't likely that she claims any. It sure soun...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: I want to start saving money for my children - UpstairsComputer on 9/21/17 at 10:15 am
Someone gave you bad information. It is only an asset of the child if the child is the account owner (and they can't be the owner until age 18). If a parent or grandparent is the account owner it is excluded from the FAFSA. One thing I forgot to mention is you can change the beneficiary on th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
