When you hear the words "net worth," you might picture people in limousines or country clubs. But many money experts say knowing your net worth—that's the value of all your money and possessions, minus all your debts—is valuable no matter what your financial situation is.
Despite yesterday's heavy snowfall, the It's Your Money Project joined Free Community Tax Service at St. Paul Catholic Center in offering a valuable financial resource to Spanish speakers. With help from Liliana Embriz of El Centro Comunal Latino, congregation members attending the afternoon Spanish-language church service received a number of tips on practical topics like choosing the right credit card, Social Security benefits, sending money out of the country, and avoiding fraud.
It's Your Money will also be tabling at Spanish Free Community Tax Service on February 28 (St. Paul) and March 3 (Main Library). Free literature on a variety of money topics—in English, Spanish, and other languages—is always available upon request; email money [at] mcpl.info for details.
