Potential tax bills could deter people from mortgage forgiveness

Most in Akron who face mounting debts will do all that they can to settle those expenses while avoiding bankruptcy. Fortunately for them, a number of federal and state programs and initiatives are in place to provide them with debt relief. For most, one of the largest debts they will assume is their mortgages, and when they encounter financial struggles, that is often the expense that they have the most difficulty in meeting. For those struggling to meet their mortgage payments, there are ways in which they can work with their lender to arrange a deal where a portion of their mortgage is forgiven while still helping them to avoid foreclosure. Yet one of the means of assistance that makes this option attractive to borrowers may soon be going away.

Be careful before blindly signing up for medical credit cards

Medical debt remains one of the most prevalent forms of debt carried by residents of Cuyahoga Falls and across the county. Yet unlike other types of debt, it's one that's not easily avoided. No one is expected to refuse medical care when it's necessary, and even those with health insurance can be saddled with enormous medical bills depending upon the type of service that's needed. The fear of drowning in such debt can often lead people to make rash, hurried decisions in order to potentially avoid it.

Newly-elected official accused of hiding bankruptcy from voters

Most in Akron arrive at the decision to file for personal bankruptcy after a lot of thought and heartache. However, the stigma that was once associated with those who filed for bankruptcy has all but disappeared in recent years. As such, those who choose to make this decision needn’t hide from it; on the contrary, many may view their willingness to face scrutiny for it as a sign of good character. The general public has shown, for the most part, to be very understanding of such a personal decision. Yet, as with most other aspects of life, there’s a right way and a wrong way to handle things. By handling the news of one’s bankruptcy poorly, he or she opens the door to criticisms that he or she probably hoped to avoid.

Singer Aaron Carter files for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection

Stories about those in Cuyahoga Falls filing for bankruptcy usually only turn the heads of those directly involved with the filers. Yet many people tend to sit up and take notice when a celebrity files for personal bankruptcy. People will often question how those who are given so many financial resources are still able to end up in such a dire financial situation, often owing up to millions of dollars in debt. The response to that question is almost always the same: the same way as everyone else.
