By any chance do you any of you know the answer to this question?

My girlfriend is a graduate student in Michigan. She's living here in Chicago though. She received some fellowship money this year and is entering all of her tax stuff into Turbo Tax, and it's apparently telling her that she needs to pay state income tax on this money in Michigan and again in Illinois.

That sounds completely wrong to me but I don't really know this for a fact. I would think that she either earned the money in Michigan and it is not Illinois income or she's a resident of Illinois and should be taxed as residential earnings here.

Does anyone know if this is accurate? I'm trying to save her the few hundred dollars it would cost to hire someone to file her taxes for her since it would cut significantly into the tax savings if it can be changed.

So yeah, I'm looking for free tax advice.

Thanks in advance!

Hi All, I need to raise funds for a trip and since I'm not actively collecting these I've decided to let them go.  Included are 20 figures, sealed in their baggies, plus a Jabba's pipe set and a Hoth accessory set.

See the image below:

I'm asking for $300 for the lot of them, which is only an average of $15 each.  Included are:

  • Emperor Palpatine
  • Salacious Crumb
  • Max Rebo
  • AT-ST Driver
  • C-3P0 (Removable Limbs)
  • Endor Rebel Soldier
  • Klaatu
  • Weequay
  • Admiral Ackbar
  • 8D8
  • Han Solo (Endor)
  • Nikto
  • Prune Face
  • AT-AT Commander
  • Hoth Accessory Pack
  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Chief Chirpa
  • B-Wing Pilot
  • Han Solo (Hoth)
  • Nien Numb
  • General Nadine
  • Jabba's Pipe and Bowl



My only hope is that they'll go to a collector who wants to keep them in the bags instead of shipping them off to AFA.

Check my feedback here and here.

Thanks for looking![/s]

Hi Everyone, the holiday's are coming up and while I'm a little bummed to do it, I need to raise some extra cash so I'm parting with my baggie collection.  I'm not sure exactly what's fair for something like this, but based on the prices I paid, I'm asking $350 for the lot.  All are the real deal to the absolute best of my knowledge.  Feel free to email me with any questions. 

Included are:

  • Emperor Palpatine
  • Salacious Crumb
  • Max Rebo
  • AT-ST Driver
  • C-3P0 (Removable Limbs)
  • Endor Rebel Soldier
  • Klaatu
  • Weequay
  • Admiral Ackbar
  • 8D8
  • Endor Han Solo
  • Nikto
  • Prune Face
  • AT-AT Commander
  • POTF Anakin Skywalker
  • Chief Chirpa
  • B-Wing Pilot
  • Hoth Han Solo
  • Nien Nunb
  • General Nadine
  • Hoth Accessory Pack
  • Sealed Jabba's Palace Parts

Looking for mint, complete versions of these four with original weapons.  I need them to be in exceptional condition.  

  • Luke needs to be white, with no paint rubs and an original helmet and gun
  • R2-D2 needs to be white, with a nice dome, a very good sticker, and the original saber  
  •  Yak Face needs to have no paint rubs at all and an original staff
  •  Blue Snaggletooth... no paint rubs to the boots, belt, or hair.  I need the limbs to be  similar in tone to the body.  

Not to be difficult, but I'm picky about these.  I've been building a perfect set for years and these are the last four I need.  If they have any paint or sticker problems, they won't do.  If the weapons or accessories aren't original, I can't use them.

Given the high cost of these ones, I'll only buy if you have strong feedback here at JD or over at Rebelscum and clear photos of the figures I'd be buying.

Thanks in advance!

I recently relocated to Chicago to take a job as an Art Director at a studio called Vitamin Pictures which is part of Filmworkers. 

Since we just launched it, I thought I'd post a link to the new website.  Check out the Fall 2009 demo reel. 

So if you're interested in motion graphics, design, visual effects, commercials, film, etc..., check us out.  If you're in the industry, let me know:

Still looking for this one - loose is fine if it's in good shape, works, and has the remote.  Please let me know if you can help.

Thanks!

From Rebelscum:



This makes my day... I only have one of them and recently decided I wanted to pick up the rest, but they're going for $25 or so each on eBay at the moment.  I wonder if R4-P17 will show up.

Anyone have an extra of either of those?  I just need one of each - loose/complete.

Also looking for a loose TFU Stormtrooper Commander and an Elite Tie Interceptor Pilot.




Thanks in advance!
