Default Have A Stupid Question? 2021 Edition

Happy New Year!


If you have a stupid question to ask, ask it here without fear of reprisal or being told to go use the search button.

It may or may not get answered, depending on who sees it when.

It may be a such good question that someone will suggest you take it prime time and make it its own thread.

You may get a great answer.

Or several!

Or a stupid answer.

Ready....go!

Default Stupid question #1

Due to the pandemic I have rented out points through DVC Rental Store.

What it the "best" way to calculate the "gains" for tax reporting?

For US taxpayers, you need to report the rental income. If you go to the FAQ on the DVC Rental Store website, you’ll find some additional information.

In honor of the Tom Hanks/COP announcement and the start of this new thread for 2021, I have to say that, "Stupid is as stupid does!" Looking forward to learning with others on this 2021 edition

I guess to be more specific, how do you report the income.

Lets say 100 points for $1,000, do you report the total minus dues and cost of purchase?

Just trying to make sure I do this correctly, probably overthinking it.

We have a split stay coming up next month at CCV and BWV. I know when DVC first re-opened the coffee makers were not in the rooms. I believe they have been put back, can anyone confirm? Thanks!

Coffee makers were never removed from the villas. That was an initial recommendation from Orange County (FL) which was never implemented.

Great! Thanks for the reply. I must have misunderstood some posts from early stays after re-opening.

We'll be staying in a LV studio at GF next week for first time, have they switched to all paper products in the "kitchen" area?

There were some room discounts offered through DVC. I cannot remember the discount and I cannot remember the dates. Does anyone remember either of those? I looked on the DVC website and I cannot find anything.
