Top Personal Finance Posts of The Week
It’s Friday! That means it’s time for my weekly roundup of the best personal finance posts of the week. As usual, these are hand-picked posts that were either submitted via the blog carnival or interesting content that I plucked from my feed reader.

In no particular order, here are my favorite posts of the week:

J.B. presents Simplifying the Tax Code posted at My University Money, saying, “Band aid solutions are never good, and they shouldn’t be used on our tax codes.”

Nathan Richardson presents As Debit Card Fee Caps Come Into Effect, Banks Raise Fees on Consumers posted at Deals & Tips, saying, “Are you ready for the next move in the war on consumers? Banks are preparing to institute debit card fees in response to the caps that are about to go into effect.”

Charles Chua C K presents 7 Effective Ways to Determine the Worth of a Stock posted at All About Living with Life.

Steve Zussino presents The Great American Tax Hunt for Canadians posted at Canadian Personal Finance, saying, “The U.S. Internal Revenue Service is on a campaign to chase down Americans squirreling funds offshore to evade paying taxes. But the crackdown aimed at large-scale tax evaders is also hitting people of more modest means.”

Gregory Stokes presents Your Basic Guide to Child Tax Credit posted at Tax Credit Calculator, saying, “If you have children under the age of 16 you may be able to claim child tax credits. This post is a guide on how to make claim.”

Mike Piper presents Evaluating Vanguard’s New LifeStrategy Funds posted at The Oblivious Investor, saying, “Vanguard recently announced major changes to their “LifeStrategy” funds. Are the changes positive? And what type of investors should be considering these funds?”

And the award for the top post of the week goes to…Free Money Finance!

FMF has put together a great post on The Best Cash Back Credit Cards for October 2011. Comparing rewards cards can be tough since each card seems to have it’s own set of rules. FMF does a great job of breaking each card down making it easy to compare apples to apples.

If you have a personal finance site and you think one of your posts should be included next week, submit it here!

Have a great weekend!
