Question about "Settlement" post

John J.

On October 31, 2003 I posted a message with the subject
"Settlement" (see below).

The next day I went out of town for a few days, and
unfortunately did not have internet access, therefore I
missed all the replies. Is there any way I can get a copy of
the replies, or do I need to repost again?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Subject: Settlement

Almost one year ago, I have bought a house in California
from a developer, but his general contractor has not
finished yet the pick-up work, which is quite extensive.

Now the general contractor, probably very busy working on
other jobs, has proposed a settlement of about $10,000 for
the punch list repairs. If I accept the settlement, is it
taxable?

Do I have to complete the work hiring other contractor, can
I do it myself at my own discretion, or not do it at all if
I can live with the way the house is right now.

Thank you very much in advance.

Your original question, and all replies, are still posted.
Just scan the titles.

Although I hadn't recalled answering, a news.google.com
search took me about 10 seconds to locate it.

Checking Google, I found one reply from Arthur Rubin to your
post.

To read the reply, go the Google Usenet Advanced Search page
at the link below:

http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search

In the first search box labeled, "with all of the words,"
type in the word "settlement" (without the quotes).

Below in the fields for date parameters, set the first date
to 31 October 2003. You can let the second date default to
the current date. Then click on the "Google Search" button.
You should see your post along with 3 or 4 others that
contained the word settlement.

Thank you all very much for your input.
I was able to get one of the replies, but I was hoping
that the "misc.taxes.moderated" group might have saved
some of the old posts. I guess, not.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

The group per se saves nothing. All posts are saved on your
local news server for a specific amount of time. Some hang
on to them for a week, some for a month.

If you have questions about this, contact your own isp. But
don't be discouraged if the tech asks, "what's a newsgroup?"
If that happens, ask for a more senior tech.
