comment What happens to an HSA when I am no longer eligible to contribute?
I can confirm I used one for distributions after changing to a ineligible non-HDHP, and though I'm not a tax expert, no conflicts arose in TurboTax when I filed my taxes this way (I did some basic research, too.).

revised How do “allowances” work on the W-4?
Withholding is what the government takes, not what you take back (that's an allowance)

comment 2 houses 450k each or one 800k?
Consider selling the first house and buying a $500K house as your base option. Then, consider whether you want to invest in rental property (and all the pros/cons that go with it), or whether you want to spend that money on yourself (bigger house), or some other investment entirely. Those are really your three options.

comment Cash flow implications of converting primary mortgaged residence to rental
"If you're already deducting your mortgage interest and property tax on Schedule A, these two are a wash." -- I don't think so, because if you look at it that way, I'm getting $16800 in new taxable income in the IRS's eyes, when I'm not really - I'm still paying my own rent, and I'm paying a mortgage.

comment Does it make any sense to directly contribute to reducing the US national debt?
That's yet another red herring. One person's contribution to an enormous system is exactly the same thing.
