The stimulus plan and you. Another example of why it’s better to be lucky than good. Inflation is good for borrowers.
Not the easiest of reads but a comprehensive summary of stimulus plan benefits for individuals and families. If you’re just over or under the $75K/$150K (single/joint) AGI limits or have children, a little extra planning could mean thousands off your 2020 and 2021 tax bills.
How lucky was your birth year (The big picture)
“If you had invested from 1960-1980 and beaten the market by 5% each year, you would have made less money than if you had invested from 1980-2000 and underperformed the market by 5% a year. When you were born > almost everything else.”
