Stimulus benefit not for parents

Ok so the government put out all this information about this damn stimulus payment.....what they failed to tell you is that if you work really hard, make a decent salary....even up to $50,000 .....you could end up getting only a small portion of the allotted money for citizens!!!!! Ok quick income tax lesson certain tax credits are refundable (you can get money as a refund along with your monies paid in) but most tax credits are non-refundable. Basically that means if you have non refundable tax credit (ie. daycare expenses, education expenses, residential energy credits) they are calculated first so that you get their full benefit, then (if you have qualifying children) the child tax credit is figured because it is a refundable credit.....the refundable part is calculated when you tax liablity after credits is reduced to $0 and then the credit is figured as additional child tax credit and that money will then be refunded to you at tax time. Ok so now that you understand (hopefully) let me explain one more thing before I lose my cool. When you start preparing taxes you figure out that a big goal is to get your tax liability to $0 so if you have items that will qualify you for tax credits you take the credits. However the government has exploited the working class parents. The SAID the stimulus money was supposed to help the economy.....now who better to stimulate the economy than the working class parents who are in crisis to make mortgage payments AND put gas in their cars to get to work every day......BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they made their rules so that a single parent has to have a tax liability of $600 which means you got NO refundable credits at tax time and probably paid in or got a very small return and married couples....that is even worse!!! you had to have a tax liability of $1200 which means you might have gotten a refund but probably not much of one. So really is this stimulus money....or is it more to make up for the rich not having a refund....not only that but seriously this is overly ridiculous.......t he government was blowing smoke up all our butts telling us $600 per person, $1200 per couple, and $300 per child.......this is all BS!! So a married couple making $45,000, one child, education expenses, daycare expenses, residential energy credit, child tax credit and additional child tax credit will get the same exact amount of stimulus rebate as a married couple that made $15,000 total for the year with 5 kids and a welfare check every month..........SER IOUSLY THIS IS THE BIGGEST CROCK OF BULL I HAVE EVER HEARD!!!!!!!!!!! WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT PUNISHING ME FOR HAVING KIDS, FURTHERING MYSELF WITH EDUCATION, AND CARING FOR THE ENVIROMENT BY REDUCING MY CARBON FOOTPRINT????????? ?????????????????? ????????? Does this piss you off? start a letter writing campaign.......sen d e-mails to everyone you know.....do something cause this is ridiculous!!!!!!! Oh and to those who say "it is free money live with it.....remember that as much as it is "free money" you pay for all of it...when the government is willing to put out there that they are "helping " they should help.....and yeah I got a rebate but I believe it totally outrageous that i am penalized for these things! And no I did not get thousands of dollars back at tax time I got a very small amount compared to most people I know. https://sa2.www4.i rs.gov/irfof/IRSer vlet?app=IRACTC &action=rebate  (May 12, 2008 | post #1)

11-year-old boy killed by pit bull

Any dog can attack....it is just heart wrenching knowing that a child has died because of it. Animals learn their actions......my prayers go out to this family.  (Nov 9, 2007 | post #8)

Tired of People making military wives look easy.

Wanna know why you hear about it so much? The soldiers with faithful loving wives are not out telling everyone I know "man my wife was there every time I called, saved money so we could meet our goals, never thought about cheating, and stayed with me after I got home." If you know you are a faithful spouse and so does your husband that is all that truly matters......I don't like being stereotyped either! Also....being that we live in a town that is made up of people from all over the world....you tend to hear about those people more than the ones that are native. You don't read many news stories about soldiers and families that are doing the right thing.  (Nov 5, 2007 | post #112)

Should TOPIX ban that Stone Cold dude?

THIS IS HORRIBLE why would you say something like that? Do you have any idea how out of context this could be taken? Are you completely stupid? You should feel lucky if he dosen't try to find out who you are and take legal actions against you! You could really screw a persons life up!!  (Nov 5, 2007 | post #7)

Ft. Hood Soldiers Busted In Online Sex Sting

it is truly a sick person that would want to have these kinds of conversations with children even if it was adults posing as children. It is the intention.....you know if it wasn't for the sting then these guys would have been talking to a child somewhere...and actually they probably were cause it is not like people like that chat to only one person at a time!  (Sep 14, 2007 | post #7)

Dollar General Murders........any new news?

Ok so possibly my comment has been taken completely out of context because in other sections of the forum people have been hard on KPD i said "is KPD just fowling this all up or do people truly not care?" I did not mean any disrespect...my comment of do people truly not care included the people I see walking around every day that cared the day of the murder and possibly the day after....but not anymore....I think this should be on the top of the news at least once a week....and yes I am writing them too....if the police department is following up great!!! Tell us you are still investigating...le t us believe that you are doing what ever. I believe that the police department should keep most things under wraps...but remember these ladies and know that even though we are not related the people that lived in the area and frequented this establishment want to know that something is being done....we live in a "safe" area....I would love to know that everything is being done to keep it "safe" and thanks for the note on they are still working on it....it helps.  (Sep 5, 2007 | post #9)

Babies learn to sign before speaking

My sister is in High School and currently in her 2nd year of sign language. We have asked her to teach my 6 and 2 year old and also my 1-1/2 year old niece sign language. The babies seem to understand the signs better than the words at times, but I believe in opening them all to new things and sign language is something everyone should have a little knowledge of. My 6 year old calls it her secret language cause we can sign and nobody around us knows what we are really saying.  (Sep 4, 2007 | post #1)
