Taxes, Pay Raises, Investing, Real Estate, and an Interview in the Carnival Roundup

January 13, 2007

Another great week for personal finance on the web! Here at Money Smart Life I covered the topics of taxes, pay raises, investing, and real estate.

Don’t Mess With Taxes welcomes us to tax season 2007 with the Carnvial of Taxes. Check out my entry if you want to know how to pay your personal property taxes online.

It’s the time of the year for annual pay raises. I complain about mine in The Problem with Annual Pay Increases at the Carnival of the Capitalists at Diary of a Startup.

In The Carnival of investing at Binary Dollar I talk about how a common investing example commonly used to motivate people to start investing leaves out a key point in Learn from Dick and Jane. Don’t Be a Dick!

Financial superheros rescue the world from financial troubles over at the Carnival of Personal Finance hosted by Get Rich Slowly. My recommendation is to use your personal finance super power to stay out of financial trouble by Discounting the Value of Your Home.

I share an interview about my money mistakes, why I write about personal finance, how long I’ve been saving, and things I’ve given up to save money in the Carnival of Money Stories over at Money Walks.

Looking forward to another great week! Don’t forget, you can win free financial advice by participating in the FinaceSpirations challenge. Hurry, it ends 1/22!
