Estate/Inheritance Tax Question

How long does it normally take to get approval of the filing of a federal estate tax return? How about the filing of an Iowa inheritance tax return? eg, how long does it take to receive the tax clearances from the feds and the state authority? If it matters, the returns are being filed by a major financial institution for an estate with substantial assets.

Bad Credit Mistake, Good Person

I have a question about resolving an issue with my credit that is keeping me from opening a new bank account. I was overdrawn at Washington Mutual in California. The amount is around seven hundred dollars. It went to a credit agency a while ago and now shows up on my credit report. I have moved to Pennsylvania and when I went to open a new bank account, surprise surprise was not allowed to. The bank employee told me that what I needed to do is call the credit company and tell them that I will pay the full amount, (which I want to do, and thankfully, can now), if I get them to agree to send a written confirmation that I have made good on my debt and that the matter has been resolved. He said that is the only way that I will ever get to open an account at any bank. A few weeks ago, I went through metafilter with a fine tooth comb to find advice on how to go about this, but didnt find the answers I need. [more inside]

What does it take to become a financial analyst from a non-finance background?

I'm currently in a career dilemma, debating myselfe whether I should continue doing what I do as a data analyst (in sales analytics) or start a new career as a financial analyst (FA) after taking some necessary classes or training. One of my motivations is that FA gets paid more than data analyst, very easily, and FA deals with cross-department data and plays a much bigger, visible role in terms of decision advising and/or making. I did very well in accounting, finance, and economics when I was in the business school and still have clear understanding of the concepts. However, I don't have experience or proper training in financial analysis. Will an online course like this one financial analysis gear me up in a short time? If not, whatelse shall I do to get myself ready besides taking classes from a university? My other question is: How likely will companies hire someone like me with strong background in data analysis but none from financial perspective? If you have any experience, thought or input, please share it with me. Thank you so much.

Basically, I am looking for a credit card that is easy to get and that I can get miles on. Remember my credit is whatever.

New locale vs. financial security

I have lived in Minneapolis for 7 years, as I went to school here and had my first "real" job here. I have been planning on moving to Oregon at the beginning of April, turned in my lease, etc. Just today, I received an excellent job offer in MN from a submission I made in October, I haven't been applying around here for the past few months. So, do I stay and take the job, or move as I have been planning, although I have no employment prospects in Oregon, just the desire for change.

Student loan collection fee elimination?

So this idiot "friend" of mine defaulted on his student loans, and the collection agency in charge of, well, collecting them has tacked on about $5000 worth of fees. Now that he's paying them back and rehabilitating his loan, is there any way he can get those fees eliminated? The collections agency says the best they'll do is deduct about $1000 after rehabilitation, but I'm convinced there must be something more he can do. Thanks, as always!

Where do you go for financial advice?

In the UK we have what are called Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) who, funnily enough, give independent financial advice, either for a fee or commission. Collectively the IFAs run ads in the major papers and have a website where you can find those local to you - you can go and see a few if you want, getting a second or third opinion. I now live in California - is such a service available here, and if not, how do you guys go about getting trusted advice on major financial decisions?
