Reducing Home Heating Bills

January 31, 2019

Unless you live in the deep, deep South, you’re feeling winter’s icy grip. What a great time to revisit some ways to save on hefty heating bills. On this MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore warm things up with some great ideas to cut the cost of heating your home this winter. 

Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • If you have 3 teenagers at home and are realizing that you have not prepared them to have a successful financial future, is it too late to train them?
  • If you purchased a vehicle for your 17 year old senior to drive during school with the notion he would purchase it  after his senior year, should you just make it a gift or should you sell it to him?
  • If you and your spouse got an inheritance from his parents but now owe more taxes than money, how do you get out of this difficult situation?
  • If you're 71, just retired and want to know if you can reduce your taxes on Social Security by rolling over a portion of your RMD from a tax-sheltered annuity account directly to my church, is this a good idea?
