Traditional IRA - Missed the RMD

We had been crazy busy in our business and our CPA just caught it that we missed taking the required distribution from a small traditional IRA we had when spouse turned 70 1/2. Spouse is now 72. So, we closed the IRA and withdrew all of it, which I [more]

Re: Any thoughts on Kauai?

Thanks for all the links and ideas of what to do. As usual, I now wish we could stay 6 months! I forgot to say we love to snorkel, so any info on great snorkeling spots would be appreciated. I guess the Kauai Revealed book will have it all. I ordered [more]

Re: Masonite Siding

We had some Masonite siding years ago. We replaced it with Hardie board maybe 10 years ago. We have done absolutely nothing to the Hardie Board and it looks exactly like the day it was installed. I highly recommend it. It is high quality and [more]

Re: Any thoughts on Kauai?

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. You are definitely right about that "Kauai Revealed" guidebook. We bought the same guidebook when we went to Maui, and it is by far the best guidebook around. Everyone called it the "Blue Book." [more]

Any thoughts on Kauai?

We are hoping to use some freq. flier miles and go to Kauai in the Spring. Any suggestions on which parts of the island are good to stay? We are looking for a condo on the beach, and some nearby restaurants that aren't too pricy. We'll probably do [more]

Re: Offer-bidding against listing realtor

Well, we found out today, our offer was beaten by $19,000. So, we are not too sad about it. Whomever bid that much, must really want it -- it was about $10,000 over what it is worth. We will keep looking! Thanks for all the replies to my post. I [more]

Re: What color wood floors do you like?

Thanks guys! Interesting replies. Most said the dark would show the dust and I agree. I would never put them in my own house. I don't want to be a slave to a Swiffer! We will also price some nice tile and continue to think it over. Tile would be a [more]

Re: Offer-bidding against listing realtor

That's interesting about the REO listing agent to not be allowed to bid/buy the properties. I actually see it somewhat, that if they have a bunch of bids come in and they want to beat the highest bid and get it for themselves, I guess they should be [more]

What color wood floors do you like?

We are remodeling a house and it is in Florida. It will become a rent house and our renters are usually 28 to 36 years of age. (So, I want to appeal to this age group). We are probably going to put in floating laminate floors - wood looking - but [more]

Re: Offer-bidding against listing realtor

Thanks for all the advice. FYI, our bid is all cash, no appraisal, no inspection, quick close. We have flipped a few and pretty much can repair most anything and know what repairs we are getting into anyway on this one. We are hoping our "all [more]

Offer-bidding against listing realtor

We found a good house and are going to make an offer. The asking price is lower than what this house is worth, so we will be bidding more. The realtor we are working with is NOT the listing realtor, but she has spoken to the listing realtor and after [more]

QuickBooks Question

I know there is a QuickBooks board here at the Fool, but there haven't been any messages on it in a long time. I am going to post this here and maybe someone knows the answer.

Re: Setting up a Living Trust

Breakfast potatoes?

Does anyone have a good recipe for breakfast potatoes? I am looking for something leaning toward a "Tex-Mex" direction if possible. Thanks!

Re: Painting stucco?

We live in Florida and every house around here is painted stucco -- earth tone colors as well as pink, blue, gray, green, etc. Every color imaginable. We did some repairs to an exterior wall, and over the new stucco, we had to put a sealer first, but [more]
