Ever found finance as dull as dish water?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. But there are things out there that can make life that little bit easier – and even one that helps us remember how lucky we are amid all the economic doom and gloom of the last few years.
The first is a simple tax calculator that lets you enter your scenario, compare your tax with the Bush cuts and without, and turn the AMT patch on and off.
The second is a cool way of figuring out how to get the best value for money with everything from renting vs. buying property to Social Security calculators that’ll help you decide when you need to start collecting. Here’s the link.
It’s also got IRS Required Minimum Distribution calculators for those over 70½, by the way, and only costs 15 bucks.
The final one’s especially good for helping with that all-important peace of mind. See just where you are on the world’s rich list – and spare a thought for all those people who are living on $1 a day or less (all 1.3 billion of them!). Simply enter your income and away you go.
