    Fair enough. But, based on recent history, and the fact that most of the core GOP members of Congress are still in place, hoping they will practice what they preach, seem like just that: Hope.

    Because most everyone paying less taxes last year and/or most everyone getting a refund is bad for Obama.

    What a tool.

    It was confusing for me and matt....we had received a +/-$200 buck check earlier in the year as stimulus, because matt is a Disabled Vet....I don't remember getting the check??? Matt could not remember either??? So we had to go through our records of direct deposits for the VA and low and behold, there it was, back in June of last year....soooooooooo, we had to take this amount out of the $800....

    I still have not filed yet.... :(

    And I should NOT be on here posting..... :(

    I have NEVER filed my taxes earlier than April 15th....I am one of those nutty procrastinators...last second filers....it is a disease, I swear it is! :eek:

    No willow, they GOT an $800 dollar tax break/stimulus, just not a $1050 dollar tax break/stimulus as they, (And I) would have liked by adding the $250 to the $800 they already got.

    Do you ever tire of having to explain things over and over to Willow?

    :eusa_liar:They don't have to pay it back, they merely swap it for part of another credit they received. It is to prevent double dipping.
