Protect Your Wealth From the IRS, The Tax Window of Opportunity / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research writes: The biggest danger to your wealth isn’t a bubble in China or Europe – it’s the IRS. Since 1987, top earners have been taxed between 28 percent and 39.6 percent, a relatively low range compared to the 50-percent-and-above rates for most of the century. However, with enormous annual deficits and Social Security lurking around the corner like a mugger, the future promises a return to old tax norms.

Best Cash ISA Savings Account as April 5th 2010 Tax Year Deadline Looms / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirstly, some great news in Labour's last Budget for ISA savers and investors, in that the ISA allowances will now rise in line with inflation which starts with the new total allowance of £10,200 from 6th of April 2010 for all ISA savers that basically makes up for not having indexed the original allowance of £7,200 for the past 10 years. For cash ISA savers this means £5,100 will rise annually inline with the RPI inflation index from April 2011 which will make significant difference over the long run i.e. at an average inflation rate of 3% the total annual ISA of £10,200 in 10 years time will stand at £13,708, with a total additional allowance of £18,440 (£9,220 cash) so a significant difference and an even greater potential for cash ISA's to be used as a relatively risk free pensions savings vehicle without all of the tricks, fees, charges and risks built into the existing stake-holder and personal pension plans that ensure pension investors don't get anything like the returns they are promised.

By: MoneyFacts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVirgin Money’s decision to reduce its 0% balance transfer period from 16 to 14 months has highlighted another tactic by credit card providers who, over the course of the credit crunch, have adopted a risk based approach to lending.

The number of cards offering balance transfers has fallen by 10% since the credit crunch began in 2007. As of today, 152 out of 219 cards offer balance transfers deals, 140 of them at 0%.

More Pensions and Retirement Disasters / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI can’t believe the number of frightening retirement stories I’ve seen in just the last week. They suggest that the vast majority of our country’s citizens are completely unprepared for life after work. They point to a governmental backup system that is getting ever more desperate. And they suggest that other traditional sources of retirement income — such as corporate pensions — are in grave danger of imploding.

Tax Free Cash ISA Deadline, Best Savings Account Pays 3.5% Interest Rate / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust four weeks remain for savers to fully utilise at least the £3,600 cash element of their annual £7,200 ISA allowance. Even if you have already utilised this years allowance, savers need to ensure that they check the interest rates being paid on a regular basis, especially for those accounts that have matured as the banks and building societies are notorious for cutting rates on existing accounts and dumping matured accounts into pittance paying cash ISA accounts, paying as little as 0.1%. i.e. 1/30th the rate of a top current instant access account which on an ISA account balance of £3,600 means the difference between receiving £3.60 or £108 in interest per annum.
