Let’s toast to extraordinary savings! At Aspire, we save you money. But sometimes, our message may seem too good to be true, and we must admit, it can be hard to convey just how much Aspire can potentially save you. There’s just nothing like hearing the actual savings from one of our members. Take a look at this testimonial, provided graciously by Sharlenea K., after her experiences with purchasing our discounted Mechanical Breakdown Protection.

The IRS has a tool to help people who have to repay their First-time Homebuyer Credit. Reminder letters will no longer be mailed to taxpayers who have to repay the credit, but you can now use an online lookup tool on the IRS website to check your repayment obligation.

If you bought a home in 2008 and claimed the First-time Homebuyer Credit, the credit is similar to a no-interest loan and must be repaid in 15 equal annual installments that began with your 2010 return. Also, anyone who sold their home, or stopped using it as their main home, may have to repay the entire credit whether their home was purchased in 2008, 2009 or 2010. 2.

To manage your money well if you are in a relationship, you and your partner need to sit down and really communicate about how much money you actually bring in and how much money actually has to go out the door every month for you to survive. Be careful of falling into the trap of having “his money” and “her money.” While that might seem like a modern thing to do, you won’t really get to know what the truth about your financial reality is unless you figure out what you bring in together and what you pay out together.…

Does money trickle out of your wallet like a lazy river, a babbling brook, or rushing white water rapids? Government figures show that many households with a total income of $50,000 or less are spending more than they bring in thanks to the liberal availability of credit. This doesn’t make you an automatic candidate for bankruptcy, but it’s definitely a sign you need to make some serious spending cuts. A budget is the only practical way to get a grip on your spending. Creating a budget requires that you: Identify how your money is spent today. Evaluate your spending. Set goals that take into account your financial objective. Track your ongoing spending to make sure it stays within your established guidelines. Here’s how to put a dam on your uncontrolled cash flow: Watch out for cash leakage.
