Questions regarding PMI...

I'm investigating reappraising our house to get rid of PMI. We meet the conditions for application, which involve bringing in an appraiser. The appraiser we would pay for is hired through the mortgage company — we have no control over the appraisal process.

Mass. income

My BIL claims that insurance settlements for injury are not taxable income in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I can't believe the state doesn't overfish that particular revenue stream. So, is it taxable income or not?
