Re: for people expecting to be paid on Friday 1/1/2021 - slightly odd note from employer HR

I get paid every two weeks. For unknown reason, our last pay date is Dec. 11. The Dec 25th check will be in 2021. I have never noticed that until today. I have to increase my 401k contribution for the remaining three pay dates as we have one less this year. My mega corp is a Fortune 100 company.

Re: Are you still going to the grocery store or using a delivery service? Which?

I have had good experience with Walmart pick up. Only 5% of the items are not available when I pick up my groceries. Not sure about mark up. But some items at Costco via Instacart have 20% mark up.

Just made my first two orders for grocery pick up at two different places. It’s very difficult to find slot for delivery.

Re: Turbo Tax HSA question (Deluxe version)

I thought Box 1 is already excluded the $8000 HSA contribution. Maybe Turbo tax default is I don't have HDHP in 2019. Once I checked Yes, the penalty is then removed?

Turbo Tax HSA question (Deluxe version)

I have $8000 HSA contribution from employer and payroll contribution (Box 12 of your W-2). After I checked I was covered by a Family plan every month of the year, my fed tax was changed from $128 due to $2272 refund, is this correct? Thanks!

My original monthly fee was $59. After the contract expired, I called to cancel. ADT offered to lower my fee to $10/month.

Re: How much homeowners insurance?

I am not sure whether you can select your own amount for replacement cost (RC). I had an all brick house with estimated value of $700K. However American Family had a RC of1.7 million (yes, it’s not a typo) and wouldn’t lower the coverage. Later I switched to AAA which still had the RC of 1.1 million...

Re: Why Is Cord Not Included?

For electric range (220v), most are hardwired. So no cord is needed.
