Considering the two sentences:

The first thing they would do was take money

The first thing they would do was to take money

Which one is grammatically more correct? There is a rule which says when to use “to” after the verb to be? Thanks

    I like the first version better, but I think this is more of a stylistic choice than a grammatical one. – J.R. Dec 26 '18 at 20:09
