    Rebate Checks/Deposits

    Tax rebates start showing up in bank accounts Monday - Yahoo! News

    For those of you who are getting your government handout, the deposits are starting today!

    Yay "free" government money! What a waste!

    Re: Rebate Checks/Deposits

    My entire salary is a government handout if you push the issue. As my income is tax exempt, I get "no" rebate. It would be a grave injustice if folks like me qualified for it, imo....

    Why did they not give it to you? They gave it to others with NO income!

    Re: Rebate Checks/Deposits

    Even though I'm going to enjoy the extra $1200 - this makes me sick that our government has resorted to this to "stimulate" the economy. This is the freaking USA, the most powerful economy in the world! What has happened to us.

    This whole thing is pointless. If everyone has 600 dollars, then in reality, no one does.

    The funny thing it is just like last time, it is a pre-rebate of your 2008 taxes refund. I sure hope everyone getting the check has no other sources of income that cause you to pay taxes at the end of the year, because that rebate check is going right back to the man!

    Do I think it was a solid plan? Nope. Will I happily take my $600 and invest it. Yep. So, in reality, I DO have $600 but I won't be blowing it like the govt wants me to.

    Frankly I would love it if everybody just paid bills and invested it. That would be hilarious.

    Im a communist. Sorry. =) I watched a thing on the news lastnight how companies like Sony are gearing up for these checks coming out. They have created enticing prices so people go out and blow it on a new tv. Then they interviewed a mother who mentioned how she will have to use it for essentials because of the price of gas, food, etc and would rather spend it on taking care of her family than getting a tv or some non-necessity.

    Miscalculated inflation.

    You only get a rebate if you have income in line 46. As my income is tax exempt, my line 46 is a zero.

    While some folks who didn't pay taxes will get it, they still have a positive number on their line 46.

    When I had my accident and couldn't work, I had a positive number on line 46, but I didn't pay income taxes because it wasn't a big enough number.
