Do You Need A Tax Break?

No Sales Tax On Tax Day

Income Tax FormFour restaurants in Miami-Dade County will pay the sales-tax on their customer’s bill on tax day, April 15, 2009.  The four restaurants are:

These restaurants want you to feel better even on a day when you have to pay your federal income tax.  Enjoy a good meal and save the sales-tax.  Sounds like a nice offer to me.

Do You Want To Meet Face to Face With Your Lender?

JP Morgan Chase & Co. Opens Foreclosure Prevention Centers

Meeting Face to FaceIf you are behind on your mortgage payment and want to meet face to face with your lender then you are in luck if your lender is Chase.  Chase opened a foreclosure-prevention center in Aventura mid-February and held an open house on Tuesday.  The address of the center is 20803 Biscayne Blvd, Aventura, FL  33180.  The center accepts walk-ins, but appointments are preferred.  You can make an appointment by calling (305) 682-3018.

Chase says that it is the first lender in the nation to open these assistance centers.   There are 5 centers in Florida.  Chase will try to help all its clients to stay in their homes, but not everyone will qualify for loan modifications.  Delinquent borrowers who visit the centers will be assigned a housing counselor who will stay with them throughout the modification process.   You are eligible to visit one of these centers if Chase services your loan.   You can tell if Chase services the loan because the mortgage statement will refer to Chase, Washington Mutual (WaMu) or EMC.

Unfortunately you must be behind on your mortgage payment if you want to visit the center.  If you are still current on your Chase mortgage, but you may be in default very soon, call (866) 550-5705.
