Am I Supposed to Get Stimulated?

So my wife keeps asking me if we are getting a stimulus check from the IRS/government. I don't remember what the deal was, but I'm thinking that it wasn't a check we were to get, but instead if we qualified, we got to deduct some amount from our taxes or something.

Is most everyone supposed to be getting a stimulus check this year? Or what?

If you haven't been stimulated by now, you probably won't be.

Wife and I each got one for $250 two weeks ago, went straight to the checking account. It offset the state income tax we paid. Her's went toward ticket to Australia and I invested in a very small laptop. Scratch and dent to be reported on when arrives. If you still want one hope you like Pink.

If you didn't get the stimulus check last year from your 2007 return, you could get it this year as a "recovery credit" if you requested it on your 2008 return.

It's either applied to reduce the amount that you owe or it's added to your refund.

I got $250 the other day. I think this was for Social Security recepiants only. My wife is too young so she didn't get one.

The current 'stimulus' is a lower withholding rate. A mini tax cut.

As an "independent contractor," with no debt, I ain't getting shizzle.
No boost in unemployment bennies, no middle-class tax-cut, no "stimulus," no mortgage principal reduction, no lower interest rates.

Nothing.

and we get taxed twice as contractors. Its because we have no lobbying power, and we don't make enough to be an important economic block to be given any consideration when decisions are being made.

Also, the current stimulus phases out above certain income levels.
