  1. The discussion you had at the end about why you shouldn’t give an in interest free loan to the government was great. I did a blog post about that and it was actually one of my least read posts. Even people in the personal finance blogger community somewhat disagreed. I just don’t understand their point of view. Paying too much only to get it back next year makes no sense, and as you guys said is poor tax planning.

  2. Any chance we can get the credit card pay off strategy transcribed like you mentioned? I’d love to share with a friend!
