I'm really ignorant here. I filed my taxes and found I will receive a small rebate-know the mailing date on that as the tax preparer told me. I have been hearing bits and pieces on TV about monies being sent to folks who filed a return i n '07 which is not the rebate. What is this and who qualifies? Even received a notice in the mail that this will happen for some people. If you have an answer please keep it simple as I border on dim-witted in this area-thanks- Linda

I don't really understand it myself, but basically President Bush decided the government had too much money and was going to give some back to everyone who had filed a tax return. Then there is some sort of formula to determine how much each person receives.

I figure it doesn't really matter, I'll just cash the check when it shows up, however much it is for.

Maybe I'm a cynic.....BUT..... Funny how we're getting this lovely gift (of our own money) in an election year....coincidence? You decide. ( I will of course be returning mine with a little 'thanks but no thanks note' NOT)
love and peace as always.

Normally, people who receives wages or self-employment below a certain amount are not required to file a tax return. However, the economic stimulus law passed in February contains a special provision allowing low-wage workers with at least $3,000 in qualified income to qualify for the stimulus payment. There also is a payment of $300 for each eligible child under age 17.

Free File: Economic Stimulus Payment provides free tax preparation software and electronic filing for people who are submitting a return solely to receive their economic stimulus payment

Bill: I wasn't here then, so I can't really comment....BUT the British Government is always pulling stunts like this to try to sway the public (in my opinion). Either it's 'sweetners' in terms of tax breaks etc....Or else they redraw the constituency boundaries to fiddle the votes. One of the many drawbacks of the " first past the post " system.

Yes I'm sure its all a big conspiracy theory. The checks are probably laced with some mind controlling ink.

I just wish I could get my check in time to use it to pay what I still owe on my income tax.

but if you make too much money, you apparently don't get to be stimulated....and get no refund!

Let's call it what it is...a bribe. Economic stimulus my a$$. We don't have the money for this...we're further in the hole than anyone could have thought possible. Oh, I'll take it...but, seriously, how is this going to stimulate the economy? It didn't work in '02 (I think that's when they did it before)and, considering all the houses going into foreclosure, I don't see how it's gonna help now. I'm pissed. Can you tell?

Oh come on. That check will cover at least 3 nights in a nice motel - before you figure out which underpass will be your new home.
