Re: Hello new members!

mrsjaxrbtr ·
Hello, I'm new at Penny Hoarder and am surprised at all the many types of topics available on this site to either discuss for advice or assist with ideas. I am retired, am not yet eligible for SS, and I receive a modest retirement from where I worked for 32 years. We pretty much live on my husband's retirement and SS retirement income. In 2016 we refinanced our home and changed it from a 30-year loan to a 15-year loan. Big Mistake. My husband was working with another partner in a law firm...

Re: Living off $720 s month

AverageJoe ·
@KKimberly I am so sorry to hear of your struggles. I have to say that this was quite similar to our situation back in the 1980s and '90s. My wife could work part-time, but I couldn't keep a full-time job at all. I had to keep jumping from job to job, and at times had to go out on my own and collect cans by walking the sides of the backroads and highways, dumpster diving and living off of that, my wife's meager income and the income from the aluminum cans and batteries (car) that I would...

Re: Financial Fitness February: Day 10

Hi @mintjulep You absolutely don't need a store. eBay gives you 50 free listings per month. However, eBay recently added a Starter level store that is very inexpensive ($8 month) for 100 listings. As for sales tax, eBay takes care of all states that have passed the Marketplace Facilitator Law. The only tax you would have to worry about is your in state sales. There are still states that haven't passed or started the MFL, you do not need to worry about those and when you do, eBay is the one...

Re: Stimulus check

If you collect unemployment and receive the additional $600 weekly, that is taxable. If you collect for the full 4 months, the approximately $10,000 will put you into a higher tax bracket next year come tax season.

Re: Unemployment benefits for cash workers

JeremyM ·
Mostly cash businesses still should have bookkeeping showing incoming and outgoing transactions. There should still be tax documents. If you are just taking in cash without any receipts or proof of actually doing business, then I doubt you will be able to collect unemployment. But, given the current pandemic, who knows...

Re: stimulus check confusion

"Payment Status Not Available." "We are unable to provide the status of your payment right now because we don't have enough...

Re: Are you an Amazon shopper?

Deon Christie ·
I don't really shop on Amazon @Briana . I have however had some book sales through bookstores like Amazon, Kobo, Google Play and iTunes. I normally publish through BookRix. My online shopping consist more of stuff like hosting, training programs and memberships to collect knowledge. Driven by my curiosity (or rather fascination) around the method of generating a passive online income.

Re: Credit Collections

Juanita Tallent ·
Been there ! So even though its a charge off that does not mean the company cannot try to collect and most often will !!!!!!! its a nightmare . You technically do owe but the general norm is people don't. Block the call or try to settle for pennies on the dollar amount owed. But yes they can continue to collect. Also make sure it really is that company and not a scam.

Re: Not having someone to bounce ideas off.

maria rose ·
I have always tried to be in charge of my finances even with a partner (I am currently and plan to stay single since I turned 50 and divorced). Some people work well together budgeting but that only works if you both discuss finance spending and budgeting and come up with a budget that both can deal with. As part of my divorce, I went through a bankruptcy to remove the debts that occurred and left unpaid by my ex-spouse because I live in a joint ownership state for anything that occurs...

To all of us who are experiencing a negative financial situation as a result of the pandemic, please check your state's treasury to see if there is unclaimed funds being held in your name or your maiden name. You may discover a nice surprise there. Every state is required by law to have an Office of Unclaimed Funds, to hold on account funds which are undeliverable to the recipient for various reasons. Funds are matched via Social Security # or Federal ID # if they are for a business entity.

Re: A family member asks you for a $1,000 loan to help start a business.

Gatoray57 ·
Choices are too limited. I would rather invest money in a family member's business adventure IF they had a business plan that could pass my own "Shark Tank" test. Then there's tax considerations. A worthless stock loss is much easier to deduct for tax purposes than a non-business bad debt loss. If you were audited, IRS would be inclined to treat a bad debt loss to a family member as a gift unless you could document a loan agreement as well as efforts to collect.
