re: Uber or Lyft availability for an early flight from MSY? - GoIrish02
Metairie Cab takes reservations, are more reliable than gyspy cab operators on those apps and they’re cheaper too. My family and I used Metairie Cab for a 5:45 am departure for an 8 am flight just recently without issue. $12/person flat rate to airport vs $75+ for an Uber that would hold 4 people fo...

From Clay's announcement this morning: [quote] As I looked at the data during 2020, the story it told me was clear.

re: Has it started to become normal to pass off the CC Service Fee to the Customer? - GoIrish02
It's against their agreement with the CC companies, Visa and MasterCard allow anyone to report a business that charges extra for using either card. Repeated charging of fees will get their license revoked from both companies. You can always refuse to pay the service charge too, while pointing ou...

re: Biden’s estate tax changes will wipe out millions of small businesses: Norquist - GoIrish02
In my opinion REtaxing one's accumulated assets is immoral and is designed primarily to punish responsible, successful people with virtually no tax benefit to the Treasury. (Capital gains are also immoral, the government's demanding a cut of one's gain for taking the risk of investing, when the ...

re: Biden’s estate tax changes will wipe out millions of small businesses: Norquist - GoIrish02
[quote] Also, any proposal of step up basis elimination is only being discussed being applied to assets that do NOT have estate tax apply to them. [/quote] Norquist is exactly right, and you're missing how this proposal would effectively nullify the estate tax exemption, if your wording is correc...

re: Should I be hurrying to move everything into my Roth? - GoIrish02
It's much easier to raise income taxes on required RMDs than to invent a whole new way to track cost basis in accounts that have never tracked cost basis before and have existed for decades. The IRS only instituted cost basis tracking for [i]taxable[/i] accounts in 2012 and have never tracked it in ...

re: Should I be hurrying to move everything into my Roth? - GoIrish02
I'm not worried about any changes to the Roth's tax treatment going forward. Because the Roth IRA is much newer and has lower contribution limits than the traditional 401k, the total amount the government could get from taxing all existing Roth withdrawals is so small it wouldn't make a difference. ...
