Got My Tax Stimulus Check Today


Subject line says it all. $1500 appeared in my checking account this morning (Married plus one child). Of course, I'm merely presuming this was from the IRS. It could have been from that deposed Ethopian Price named "Tax Refund" that I gave my checking account information to last week.

But that thread is about refunds in general. This thread is about kenbuzz's refund!

I thought we couldn't have threads about one person any more. Nothing says unsave for work like kenbuzz's refund and kvrdave's angry pussy.

Depends. Perhaps his video card doesn't have dual monitor support.

Here is when they will start sending rebates to those for whom they have direct deposit information:

Last two digits of SSN:
00 through 20 = May 2
21 through 75 = May 9
76 through 99 = May 16

And here is when they will start mailing checks to everyone else:

Last two digits of SSN:
00 through 09 = May 16
10 through 18 = May 23
19 through 25 = May 30
26 through 38 = June 6
39 through 51 = June 13
52 through 63 = June 20
64 through 75 = June 27
76 through 87 = July 4
88 through 99 = July 11

All I know is I won't get mine until after July 11th. It takes 4 months to print a check? Come on G-Dub. It took less time to invade Iraq.

i dont think the original dates are accurate anymore
from what i understand.. they realized their computers could send them out faster than they originally projected.. so anyone that had done direct deposit, was suppose to get theirs this week.. and the people still in the 1980s, that are waiting for one to be mailed.. will get theirs over the next few decades

Actually I was going to use it to help buy a hot tub for the family, but then I found out that my wife had somehow run up a hefty balance on her CC in spite of the fact that I pay ALL of the family purchases and bills and she has an income stream that should easily be 2-3x her own personal expense needs. So rather than getting a hot tub, the cash is being used to pay down her balance. If I do anything other than that, then the first $1500 of the hot tub is effectively being financed through her double-digit-rate credit card.

We've had "the talk" since then and now she's focused on reigning-in her spending and paying off the debt. There's no rational reason I can come up with for her to be spending so much on junk like Starbucks and then letting a balance grow on her card, and it's cost her (and me) the hot tub that had been previously promised.

I might paint a Citibank logo on the spot on the deck where the tub was to go as a reminder until we actually cover it with a hot tub - next year.
