Savings Bond Advisor
Savings Bond Advisor will introduce you to the Cinderella of investments, the U.S. Savings Bond. Financial pundits have neglected the Savings Bond for a generation. Meanwhile, millions of Americans have invested significant portions of their money in Savings Bonds. Savings Bonds have been dressing for the ball since the U.S. Treasury introduced the inflation-protected Series I Bond and online accounts at Treasury Direct. After a weekend reading Savings Bond Advisor, you'll understand how Savings Bonds work, how to open an account at Treasury Direct, the history of inflation, and why the Series I Savings Bond - which protects you from the risk of default, the risk of inflation, the risk of capital loss, and comes with tax advantages - should be the foundation of your savings and investment holdings. Everyone should have a part of their investment portfolio in readily-available emergency funds. I bonds are an easy choice for this low-risk portion of your investment portfolio. If you already have an investment in Savings Bonds, you'll learn investment strategies that will increase the value of your holdings, estate planning strategies that will save your family money, and tax strategies that will help you avoid the Stinker Bond Penalty, the Double-Taxation Trap, the Deferred-Tax Time Bomb, and hidden interest-rate penalties. You'll also find out that some older Savings Bonds are a bad choice for almost every investor and what to do if you own one. The book includes access to a web site, www.savings-bond-advisor.com, that has the latest information about Savings Bond interest rates and program changes, as well as links to the forms you need to settle estates, replace lost bonds, update bondregistrations, and receive the Savings Bond college education tax-deduction. Tom Adams, the author of Savings Bond Advisor, also answers questions from the book's readers on the web site.
