Jim, I have just determined that I will owe money to the IRS. Can I file an extension and buy myself a few months to pay my tax bill? You can file an extension to get more time to file your return, but this is NOT an extension for more time to pay what you owe. If you owe money that you can not pay, you will need to file IRS form 9465 to request a payment plan arrangement. I was just hit with a penalty for not having in place health insurance. I was also told that this penalty... Read more →


Jim Paris recently mused out loud, “If no one reads your ebook…does it really exist?” While perhaps not as age-old a question as the one about the tree falling in the woods, the subject raised by Jim’s rhetorical query is one that ebook writers must constantly address.

So, how in the world can this greatly-increased ease at becoming published serve as both... Read more →

Creflo Dollar made national news this week, and not for a good reason. His fundraising campaign to buy a $60 million dollar jet become fodder for stand up comedians, and was even discussed on the Rush Limbaugh Show. There are humble servants of God all around us, but they get little such attention. One would think that the example of Jesus would be enough for us to see the importance of humility in ministry. Jesus could have asked for a posh horse-drawn carriage. He might have even required that it be gold plated, so it would garner more attention. We... Read more →

There is one topic that this blog can always rely on for a huge response from readers: Credit Repair. Major reforms have just taken place in the world of credit scoring, and it is about time. Let me make clear that all of this was the result of a settlement between the credit bureaus and regulators, chief among them the state of New York. Also brewing was federal legislation that would have contained some of the most sweeping reforms since the Fair Credit Reporting Act (1970).

Don’t miss Jim’s take on all of this, as well as on the prospect of Internet censorship, now that so-called “net neutrality” has become real.
