I'm a very early retiree due to disability; an avid investor and sometimes short-term trader. Totally debt free including my house, and live in Oklahoma. I'm addicted to world and financial news, and am always learning more about personal finance. I've facilitated five Dave Ramsey "Financial Peace University" 13-week courses. I think everyone should read his book "Total Money Makeover." I have a daughter in college, who rents her textbooks from CHEGG.com, and saves up to 70% over buying texts. The box is re-used for the return, plus return shipping & label are included. RENT via Chegg.com using COUPON code CC128010 for an extra 5% off your order, plus my college student gets a $5 referral bonus.

  • If a student receives a college scholarship from a non-profit organization is that taxable?

    Is any money received from grants or scholarships taxable?

    My daughter has been awarded a $4000 per year scholarship from a non-profit; $15,000 a year from a university;, and will probably receive about $12,000 a year from FAFSA-related grants.

    Any tax issues for any of this college education money?

  • If home heading toward foreclosure, can owner rent it to someone with a 2-year lease?

    From CNN Money .. "Under the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act, which Congress passed last May, tenantsare usually eligible to stay after the property has been foreclosed as long as they have a valid lease and are paying their rent regularly."

    So, if a homeowner knows their heading toward foreclosure, can he or she rent the house to someone (friend, relative) for a darn good rate on a two year lease? Then the foreclosing lender would have to honor the lease? Is that right?

    Seems if I want to move to Florida, I just need to find someone on the verge of foreclosure to sign a 2-year lease with me for a great rate and the lender will have to honor that lease. Cool.
