The Stacking Benjamins Show

Jan 28, 2019

On today's show we're taking your letters, but first, we're talking to Hannah Rounds, our favorite tax software reviewer, who gives us the lowdown on the good, bad and ugly of tax software. She'll tell us which brands to avoid, which are her favorites, and which packages are surprising. Whether you're willing to pay for your tax support or are looking for the best software package for free, we'll dive into all of the brands to help make your filing season easier.

We're happy that the government shutdown is over for now, but what if it happens again in three weeks? We'll talk to Lacey Langford from the Mil Money Movement podcast about the fallout from the shutdown. If people are trying to duct tape together their financial picture until the receive their first paycheck after the shutdown, what do they do? We'll discuss resources, advice, what NOT to do, and more.

Later on, we'll throw out the Haven Life Line to Pete, who wants to know if he should invest some of his extra cash into a short-term bond fund. He has a large cash reserve, and with interest rates being very low on savings accounts, he wonders whether it'd be worth the time to spike up the interest rate possibilities a little.

And don't worry... we'll still take some time for Doug's trivia.
