Re: MAGI for Obamacare

Sorry I didn't read the entire thread and didn't realize this was such an old question...hadn't been on this board for a long time. As usual Peter is spot on with his tax knowledge. We are so fortunate to have him in this community.

Re: Unusual Agreement to Sell Up to 140 Sears

The next question(s) I have...is there an arranged buyer for these stores? Could it be an Amazon as a distribution center? Could the consumer pickup his order here for a cheaper freight to avoid last mile delivery? Would the Mall owner accept Amazon [more]
