Movie Star Tax Cheats!

The 2012 tax season has come and gone but for a few big time entertainers, it’s far from over.  Tax evaders, debt dodgers and the name calling could go on believe me but the facts are real, some of our favorite movie stars are tax cheats.  Sorry, that’s the last one I promise. J-Lo’s baby daddy and vexed-ex singer Marc Anthony was reported to be on the federal hook for $3.4 million.  I don’t know how much money he earned to owe over … [Continue Reading]

Is Premium Gas Just Wasted Cash?

Premium vs. Regular Gas I’m pretty tight with my money because I’m smart, and stingy… and cheap.  So what happened when my co-worker came over to show off her new Mercedes, a particular tech-head who’s really into cars, electronics and gadgets starts in with this warning about using nothing by Premium Gas at the pump.  Of course I eavesdropped on the conversation because I’m also a snoop.  “Regular gas is just as good as … [Continue Reading]
