I've not seen where it makes much of a difference other than the open access to a CFP. I don't really put too much value in that either. If you haven't had a financial plan done, now's a good time to do it.

But now with [MOD EDIT]taxes, my interest income is killin' me...

We are both retired, so lotsa scuba now!

Sorry to go Off Topic...but this is a WHEEE thread, so what the heck....

I'm not aware of any closed fund offers. Turbo Tax originally was going to cost extra because of Sch D. We had a nasty thread dumping on Intuit. I ended up getting a free version of H&R Block's program.

I sold some after tax assets to fund 2015 expenses and compared to Dec '14, I'm still 'ahead' by a sizeable chunk, so, feeling smug & happy about now.

Somehow I'm feeling a bit like Charlie Brown after W2R's outstanding "Whee" signal: hmm... what's coming next in this market?



P.S. Happy Valentines day to everyone here.
