    Income Taxes: Turbo Tax - H&R Block - File Your Own?

    Well I'm on the fence to continue paying our tax guy $250 again for what is now a very simple return. I just did it by hand using the 1040 .pdf file and know what the results should be. I've always done my own but the past 20 years we have used her family friend tax guy and the bill was $340...

    Retirement Planning - Lessons Learned

    I could not find a SS calculator that I liked for age comparisons so I made my own for "Dick" ad "Jane". Most people will be in their late 70's before cumulative earnings even out when comparing SS at 62, 65, 67, and 70.

    Tractor Sales In This Volatile Market

    What do you guys think? Will dealers soon be begging you to come buy and offer great deals on current inventory? OR Will dealers hold out for the better price being unsure when their inventory will be replenished? I think we can agree the economy is getting ready to take a hard hit, just...

    SCUT with AG Tires Question

    YES. another AG vs R4 tire thread. I was comparing tires at the MF dealer recently and he had identical SCUTS with R4's and AG tires. I wish I would have looked at the brand a little more closely now. I know people say AG for best traction, but these AG tires did not look aggressive at all...

    Compact Tractor Financing Comparison - Hopefully this helps someone

    Used SCUT TLB Market: Massey and Kubota With Pricing

    Did this just for fun and I know it has been discussed here. Obviously most people are upside down on their 0% financing deals when trying to sell and the ones that are many years old have really high pricing. All the more reason to buy new. I would also think that most people that have $15-20k...
