I'm glad ours will be done by direct deposit. I don't want to wait until July 11 for it to be mailed.

How can you find out how much you're slotted to get? Of course $50 would be a help. I'll take anything I can get. I know that the gas and utilities are really taking their share of my paychecks, not to mention the higher prices of food.

I need a fuel-efficent, but sporty motorcycle. That's all there is to it, and maybe I can get it with spike-studded tires for use on wintery roads. Of course, I would then probably be using so much natural gas from my furnace to heat back up that I'd spend the saving on gasolene fighting off frostbite!

Does paying bills count as "stimulating the economy"? After paying my car insurance, and getting caught up on bills, I'd like to buy some fishing gear, like a new rod-n-reel for some medium-action catfish, tackle, etc. I'd really like to buy a HDTV. It's going to depend on how much I get back for myself, and the three kids I claim on my taxes.

I read that it is basically $600 per person ($1200 per couple filing jointly) and $300 per dependent.

IMPORTANT: If you are retired and don't file taxes, you still get this. You just have to sign up. My aunt almost missed out on it but fortunately someone let her know. You should have gotten a letter about it, but you know how some of those letters just look like junk!

Mine will either go to pay tuition or pay off the credit card. Haven't decided yet.
