  • We are now getting into tax season! It’s not always a fun time, but still something worth planning through. People are actually starting earlier than usual, as taxes will actually be filed differently this time! Do the stimulus payments need to be included? Could you be taxed by more than one state? Will there be an extension? Aaron Whitaker explains the implications and answers these questions.
  • Are you crushed in debt? If COVID has had an impact on you and your finances, Paul Oster is here to help. Have you checked your credit information? Paul says you can’t rely on certain services like Credit Karma, but it would be worth going to a website called annualcreditreport.com. It’s also nice to get a FICO score, as hard as they may be to get.
