  •  Filing Taxes primary /spouse ?

    Me and my wife had started an LLC couple of years ago, where she owns 75 % and I own 25%. Never had to pay estimate taxes since it was a loss for the initial years. We also have our regular salaried jobs too. This year, i sold off my share to another individual and the company is profitable. Since its an LLC , the pass-through income applies.  Fortunately, the income was high this year, so she filed federal and state estimate taxes. When we file our annual taxes next year (joint filing), should she be the primary and me as the spouse or can it continue as me being the primary and she the spouse on the tax return. 

    Will the tax agency be able to view/link the estimate taxes paid during the year ?

  • Should i get 30 year or a 15 year mortgage?

    I took out a mortgage in 2016 for $320,000 at 3.6%. This was a 30 year loan. With interest rates low, should i get a 15 year or a 30 year. I can afford either payment. 

    Is it worth getting a 30 year which does reduce my monthly payment and every so often pay in a chunk of money towards principal. 

    Or

    Refinance at 15 year and make the set payments ?

  • Where was Manish Paul for ending of Season 10 Indian Idol?

    Was it just me or did the ending of Indian Idol , Season 10, look like it was done in an almost empty stage audience. The awards were given by Vishal and Neha. The regular host was missing. The coordination between them was horrible and even SRK was not there. It was just a bad ending (production wise) to such a great season. Anyone know the reason why ?

  • How to seal concrete gap in patio ?

    I recently moved into my 8 year old house. I noticed that in the patio, there is a gap between the concrete floor and the actual basement. All this is on the outside. I did see nails connecting these two (the patio floor and the building which has the shingles) . I do believe wood was put in between these a long time ago, as now when i remove it, they come out damp and in pieces. I think there is some soil too underneath that. Due to the damp condition, i always have mosquitoes. Any recommendations on how to seal these gaps and dry out the moisture to have a clean and non-mosquito patio.

  • Water leaking from handheld showerhead ?

    I have a moen hand held shower that is probably few years old. Every 5 secs, a drops comes out of the head when i turn off the valve. For testing, i removed the entire showerhead with the "tube", leaving only the main pipe coming from the wall. When i close the main shower valve, no leaks and no drip of water from the pipe. So i re apply the plumbers tape and put the shower back on. But still i get that leak when closed. What other area can i look into. Its weird that nothing leaks when there is no shower connected but leaks occur when showerhead connected.

  • Why is my USB3 speed slow ?

    I have a T450s with a 500 gb Samsung SSD as the hard drive. I recently bought the WD 4TB USB3.0 and started copying data from hard disk to the the external WD. All usb ports on laptop are 3.0. But the average copying speed runs between 60 - 109 mb/s. I thought with a usb 3, we should run into gbps as the average read/write copy speed . What am i missing?

  • Which nikon lens would you recommend ?

    I would like to know if there is a lens which is as sharp as a 50mm prime (with atleast 1.8 for low light photos) and the power of 70-300 mm (for the great bokeh). I am a novice and have practiced with the two above and would like to graduate to a single lens that can do both without breaking the bank. I have a D90 camera and cannot afford an expensive lens at this time in life.

  • Understanding company stock options ?

    We are not a public traded company. Our management recently gave us common stock shares of the company at 0.50 cent a share. I know that the company has a total of 100 million shares (friend from finance). I got a total of 5000 shares. If the company is sold for 200 million, does it mean that i get $5000 dollars from my shares or will the worth of my stock be different ?

  • Is it worth for indoor bulbs for growing plants ?

    I am thinking of growing herbs and few plants indoor for a continuous supply all year long. I was thinking of using full spectrum fluorescent bulbs. But my question is, if i turn on the bulb for 10 hours daily, would the electricity consumption in terms of dollar exceed the cost of buying herbs as and when needed.

    I am not discussing the healthy / organic benefits etc. I am just looking at the costs associated with this project.

    Any suggestions ?
