Hello,I have enough cash to pay off my mortgage. Am I better off paying off the mortgage (6.75%, 15 year fixed) or puting the money in an investment vehicle. I realize that the current method I am using (approximately 4% return in a money market account) is a loosing proposition even with the modest income and tax benefits (at 39.6%).When I do the math it seems that over the 15 years if I put the money into an S&P index and get back even 10% and the return is taxed as long term capital gains at 20% I can come out significantly ahead. Unfortunately this approach flies in the face of my general inclination which is to pay off all of my debts if possible.Mike
