wait wait wait...

$300 for those eligible
$600 for married couples...

I thought it was 600 and 1200!?!?

Honestly... what do they think we are going to stimulate anyways? 95% of the stimulas money will probably go to buy foriegn made goods anyways... Nice we will be stimulating the economy of the sweatshop owners in Asia!

Now the IRS is spending money to give the people who paid no income taxes, already got the "free" earned income credit money and receive every benefit available more money?

If I spent money like this I would be in bancruptcy court.

Why did the amounts go down? Did Bush need more money to "stimulate" the war?? Are we still getting money for the children?? I wish the government would actually do what they say they are going to do for once.*eye roll*

I saw that. Why do the poor get free money, the rich have their money, and the middle class gets crapped on again?

I thought that single people wouldget $600 couples $1,200 and those with children would get $300 per qualified dependent under 17 yrs old.What are the real figures?Can somebody clear up this latest confusion over these checks?Also while we wont pay NY state tax on these checks will we have to pay any federal tax on them when we do our tax return next year?

*This is from the IRS site*
Updated March 10, 2008

Starting in May, the Treasury will begin sending economic stimulus payments to more than 130 million households. To receive a payment, taxpayers must have a valid Social Security number,$3,000 of income and file a 2007 federal tax return. IRS will take care of the rest. Eligible people will receive up to $600 ($1,200 for married couples), and parents will receive an additional $300 for each eligible child younger than 17. Millions of retirees, disabled veterans and low-wage workers who usually are exempt from filing a tax return must do so this year in order to receive a stimulus payment.

It says "up to $600" so hopefully that means the lower income people are only getting $300 and others are getting $600.

*Also from the IRS Site*

Q: I normally don't need to file a tax return. How do I know if I'm one of those people who may be eligible to receive an economic stimulus payment?

A: This group includes some recipients of Social Security, Railroad Retirement or veterans' benefits as well as taxpayers who do not make enough money to normally have to file a 2007 tax return. For example, this can include low-income workers, those who receive Social Security benefits or veteransÂ’ disability compensation, pension or survivorsÂ’ benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2007. These people will be eligible to receive a payment of $300 ($600 on a joint return) if they had at least $3,000 of qualifying income.

Sorry, but that was a really dumb comment. Spitzer makes way too much money to get this checks. You have to make less than $150,000 combined and he makes WAY over that!

I e-filed my 2007 state return 1st week in February with EG Tax..........still have not gotten the refund! I've never had this problem (don't I pay a little extra to efile) IRS first tells me i'll get it within 2-4 weeks from file date, now it's changed to 6-8 weeks?! IRS says its being "processed"- EG Tax can't help me. I've spoke with several others who are also waiting for their refunds.(My return happens to be $600, too!) Maybe they are waiting to 'stimulate' me extra hard this spring! This wouldn't go over very well with the IRS if I told them "I won't be filing my taxes this year for another 6-8 weeks after deadline", now would it ?! Not going to hold my breath for our Spring Stimulation...

Yep, the people without internet access. It's doing loads of good here.:P

My question is, how much do these 320 offices cost to run, and where is this money coming from? First they waste money on mailing out fliers to everyone letting them know..what they already knew. Now we are opening offices. What's next? A cruise ship with a theatrical representation of the checks we'll get?

I would get my money back from EG...I e-filed mine on March 12th and had my direct deposit on the 21st. The problem appears to be with your return and not the IRS...

Are they going to give them EBT cards too? One stop for everything.
