    I'd talk to HR. I do married and zero, last year was the first year I got anything back. Not a lot back either.

    I do married two less dependents than we actually have.

    It breaks right at even. But I’d talk to HR.


    It would be really curious to see what would happen to our government without payroll tax reductions.

    Follow the worksheet.

    If you and your wife total income is 103k or less, enter 10. Over 103k enter 6.

    This is what I do. We don't get massive refunds, but we don't wind up writing a check either.

    Ended up just going with Spectrum. Neither me or the wife could get 100% comfortable with cutting the cord. I know it's the cheapest/best option, but we just couldn't get comfortable with it.

    You guys probably still have a home phone. We realized it was time when we stopped watching live TV

    It was the easiest, smartest, cost efficient thing I ever did.

    My only concern would be if my internet provider every decided to throttle speeds based on usage because obviously we’re data hogs.

    Also proud of myself for finally finding a deal on RedZone, $9.99 for the whole season.

    And this was the factor we could never get past.

    On the topic of internets and TV, it appears 16 mbps is the top available download speed available where I'm going to be living. Practically speaking, how good or bad is that? We stream movies/tv a bit, but that's about it besides surfing, etc.

    I guess I’d hop right back on DirecTV, likely on a new subscriber deal and all the discounts that come with it, for 1-2 years, and then resume fighting with them every subsequent year after that.

    You can stream HD. Hopefully you are getting the full 16 Mbps. Because if it drops too much, you'll drop to SD.

    I'm thinking we will be fine so long as the kids are kept in line. We effectively had about 3 the last time we had wired service, and we couldn't do much beyond stream at SD. On the bright side, the prices are fairly low.

    Do you not have a cap? Comcast is 1TB/mth, or pay $30 for unlimited.

    Full HD (1080) needs 5-8 Mbps according depending on which service FAQ you’re looking at (Netflix says 5, Hulu says 8, others are somewhere in between).

    So you should be good streaming, but it’ll probably have to be limited to one screen at a time, two at max.

    It was a deal that Verizon was offering.

    I obviously haven’t tested it out yet since the season hasn’t started, but was told it would work on both my Roku and AppleTV by downloading the NFL app.

    Nope. And I’m locked into my rate for another year (3 years total).

    Also, [uck fay] Comcast.
