The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage increased an average of 1.2% since the beginning of the year, (from 3.22% to 4.42%), and just last week it leaped a quarter of a percent. Look at this chart to see how the movement of home-loan rates last year were not bad at all, compared to the rapid increase in rates this year:I've read that many mortgage experts expect rates to continue to increase throughout the rest of this year. Let me know if you’d like me to send you some reading material.What does this mean for you if you're looking to buy a home?Well, because both home values and rates due to increase for the rest of the year, if you’re able to buy, it would be better to do so sooner rather than later. That's because the longer you wait, the more it will cost you.But there is some good news if ...

IRS has a new $600 Form 1099 Reporting requirements for Third Party Network transactions ie Venmo, CashApp, zelle, apple pay, Paypal. This is for “sales of goods and services”, this is not for payments to reimburse friends and family. American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 No new tax law, this will just now make the IRS aware that you have this income, so if it does not end up on your return, the IRS will be asking for it. https://youtu.be/uYyUhvvL0ckhttps://eataxresolutions.com/
