Milwaukee programs help home buyers to rehab foreclosures

Some people think of tax foreclosures as homes that are distressed. A new program in Milwaukee offers some help to homebuyers who are interested in buying one of the tax foreclosures from the city. The PyraMax Bank Milwaukee Tax Foreclosure program will help people to buy properties from the city. The program includes up to $20,000 as a forgivable loan from the Department of City Development that can be used to fix the property. An additional $50,000 from the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority might also be available for rehab costs.

Wisconsin same-sex couples might be eligible for bankruptcy

For most married couples, being able to file bankruptcy together is an option available during difficult financial times.

Fraudulent credit card debt scam troubling

Fraudulent charges on a credit card statement can make it difficult to pay off credit card debt. A recent credit card scam involves a very small charge that some people might not even realize has been made on the credit card. Wisconsin residents should make sure to check their statements for a charge of less than $10.
