    Rebate Checks Question?

    I was just curious to who would be getting these if they end up sending them out. Do you just have to be 18, do you have to have a job and pay federal taxes. Im a student but have a job. Would that mean that I would get one or do you have to make a certain income. I was just curious

    Re: Rebate Checks Question?

    I'm wondering if I will get one too, because my parents still claim me as a dependent. I, however, do pay taxes.

    Re: Rebate Checks Question?

    If your parents claim you as a dependent, they will get the $300 or whatever the dependent refund was figured to be.

    Don't count your eggs before they are hatched is my best advice. I am going to act like I am not getting any money. If it shows up, it will be icing on the cake. If not, no harm done.

    I would think so. If not your dad should be a nice guy and give you part of the benefit he gets.

    Wait until you get it. Nothing is for sure until you have the check in your hot little hands.

    The way the Senate is playing around with this by the time they're done I think you'll just need to be inside the country's borders at the time of mailing, regardless of whether you're employed or unemployed, paid taxes or not, age, whether you're legally a citizen or illegally crossed the border. Heck, the way things are going, foreign tourists may qualify for these rebate checks when all is said and done...

    yeah, the Senate isn't letting it flow through as was hoped for. By the time it is done with I think we'll each get a little bit of cash to buy a pizza and an even weaker economy
