Irish mortgage rates lower than euro average

Updated / Friday, 13 Apr 2012 15:07 Central Bank figures show that mortgage interest rates in Ireland remain lower than the euro zone average, while deposit rates on savings are higher.

The following is the second part of a two-part post addressing lawsuits relating to allegedly erroneous information returns Bank of America issued. An earlier version of the posts appeared on the Forbes PT site on January 6, 2015.

In today’s post I discuss a lawsuit involving the bank’s allegedly incorrect issuance of information returns showing cancellation of debt income. Raley v Bank of America involves a disabled 83-year old veteran who was fed up with the bank’s contacting him back in 2010 over credit card accounts he claimed were not his; his anger boiled over to a lawsuit when last January the bank issued a 1099C showing about $7500 in cancellation of debt income.
