Rebates

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080124/...onomy_stimulus

I'm not here to argue whether the rebates are good or bad for the economy...

I'm here trying to figure out what everyone is gonna spend there 600 to 1200 on. Im single and I make under 80k, hence im going to be getting 600 bucks come June.

HIDs, pitbull front and rear stands.. and a little left over for Mannheim.

Do you automatically get 600 even if you're close to that 76k mark? or is it a certain percentage?

That's what I understand...+ $300/kid

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Too much income - I wont get shit.

What will it take for the US to realize that it is unfair to tax people who make more money, more heavily. Is the guy who makes 25k a year a better person than me, and therefore have a right to pay less in taxes- I think not. Arent we all equals? When I go to lunch with people, and we split the tab, do we base it on our incomes? No. F-Taxes.

I'm wondering if the $75,000/$150,000 cutoff is net or gross? Might be time to contribute to my IRA again.

The rebates would phase out gradually for individuals whose income exceeds $75,000 and couples with incomes above $150,000, aides said. Individuals with incomes up to $87,000 and couples up to $174,000 would get partial rebates. The caps are higher for those with children.
Interested to hear more about this. Is this taxable income?

Oh by the way you wont be getting as much, the dems are trying to cut it in half for each person so they can include people who don't pay taxes in the rebate program, making it a grant instead of a rebate.

Looks like it will go to a track day or a new engine for the bike if it blows again since the article said they would be mailed in July .
