Re: Residential Solar

The return on investment on my solar project is pretty good; we have the benefit of net metering, and our electric rates are pretty high, thanks in part to Duke Energy billing rate payers about $3 Billion for repairs to a nuclear plant that they decided to abandon. The 30% federal income tax credit ...

Re: Residential Solar

Zeke, you are quite correct. We have a natural gas furnace and water heater. The furnace requires electricity to function, but we seldom need it, especially during hurricane season. The gas water heater needs no electric, and the ability to take hot showers during that week long power outage was a g...

Re: Residential Solar

I recently installed a grid-tied rooftop solar system with no battery bank. When I talked to the contractor about the possibility of adding batteries they told me I'd be better off getting a generator. I'm in west-central Florida, and in the 18 years we've been in this house I think there have been ...

I actually played in a Tuba Christmas ensemble almost as large as the one you posted (600 or so), directed by Harvey Phillips at Disney World in about 1994, interesting experience, makes one appreciate the value of a good percussion section.

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Many years ago my brother and I rented a car in Jamaica.

A little while later it started to rain so I turned on the wipers (by this time I knew quite well ...

Re: Hijack this thread

FICA is easy to check, it should be a straight 7.65% of gross wages (6.2% for OASDI (Social Security) and 1.45% for Medicare if the show them seperately). For FITW you could add up all the FITW withholdings from all the pay stubs for paydays in a calendar year and see if they agree to the totals sho...

Re: US v. Manafort (Guilty Plea); Kilimnik; Gates (Guilty Plea): 17-cr-201: USDC for DC; Money-Laundering, Conspiracy &

It is, but criminal prosecution is separate and apart from assessment and collection. I don't know haw it works in most states, but at the federal level, a tax fraud conviction does not result in the assessment of tax evaded, there is a separate civil process for that, including appeal rights and th...

They probably will, if they haven't already; but tax assessment and collection are civil matters, so you may not see any criminal court activity.
