Did anyone get their direct deposit yet? I keep obsessively checking bank account, with thoughts of new bio-fins swimming in my head...........

Mine hasn't arrived yet. I heard on the news that it was supposed to be in the bank between today and Wednesday for the direct deposit folks.

They are doing it by the last couple digits of SS# over next three weeks, according to IRS website, Stimulus Payment Schedule for Tax Returns Processed by April 15 (http://www.irs.gov/irs/article/0,,id=180250,00.html)

I am personally not expecting anything. Apparently I make too much money to qualify to stimulus. According to Barak O'Bama I'm rich since I make over $75k a year.

I wonder if "direct withdrawl" (I owed taxes) is the same as direct deposit?

D'oh, I'll be in last batch since my last two SSN digits start with a 9. Oh well, just going to bill anyway. :P

I WISH I made 75k a year :( Oh well. Talk about ironic - I'm self employed and I had to pay $570 in taxes (in addition to what I paid in QET). Guess what they told me I was entitled to for my "economic stimulus" check. Yep, pretty much the exact amount I had to PAY. You'd think they could just say "OK, it's a wash" but nope, bureaucracy reigns supreme!

I worked as an Information Technology Business Applications Manager although recently I have switched over into corporate planning.

Since it's direct deposit, it probably won't take that long. The dates just give them a buffer in case they need it.

Hopefully it will get here in 2 weeks when I leave for St. Thomas and I can use it towards buying some gear from my friends while I'm there (and maybe a Zena from ST).

It depends tremendously on where you live too. Making $75,000 annually in the Bay Area or Manhattan is a lot different from the same amount in rural Mississippi.

Well... Obama made $991,000 in tax year 2006. he got an almost $41,000 refund. Poor, poor thing...

source http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/files/obama_2006_tax_return.pdf


But nothing compared to the $1.6 million he made in 2005.


And he's saying folks making over $75k are "rich" ? :smilie39:

Just because you made over $75K doesn't necessarily mean you get nothing;

a. It's based on Adjusted Gross Income, not Total Income.
b. It depends on how much more than $75K. An AGI of $76K will still get something, it just starts going back down after that.

Here's a link to the deal, including a calculator to tell you what you *should* be getting and examples of what happens with an AGI over $75K. FWIW, my AGI is about $62K, I'm single with no kids, and I should be getting the full $600.

Hmmm...I'm personally not sure why we are even discussing Obama since the guidelines for economic stimulus money come from the current administration and what Obama thinks is rich or not has nothing to do with it...

But that said, my husband and I barely made the cutoff for AGI, which doesn't seem like a lot of money when you live where we do. However, the reality is that in the majority of places in the US $75,000 for a single person and $150,000 for a couple IS a lot of money.

Hot Dang We should get our on May 9th. Pay of my new Video camera. Then I get can either get a new laptop or a new surround sound receiver. These receivers go out of date faster than a computer. I bought one about two years ago, sat in a box in my living room waiting on the right High Def TV. Found out the receiver only supports 480i.!!!!

Ours is coming in on the 16th which is the day we're driving to TX so it will mostly go to pay for that trip.

I should be in the first round of payments, but nothing yet. I'm surprised my bank hasn't locked me off the site seems like I check it a dozen times today.

I plan on paying off a few small bills, then buying my hubby a new dive computer.

That is the point and the reason I brought it up was after hearing Obama Sunday morning state that he planned on only raising the taxes on the rich. When asked by Chris Wallace what he thought rich was it is in his mind $75k.

And he is a member of the Senate that set that bar when this was passed by congress. The original proposal had no such limit.

Question.... do we get the whole amount, or do they take taxes out of it? ?? Might seem like a dumb question, but I honestly don't know.... Thanks!

You get the whole amount. Someone asked that on the Today show the other day. It is a popular concern.

OK I guess I need my man card taken away for this. I told the wife today when it was coming and she said "Good Sarah and I need new clothes for vacation this summer" There goes my plan. And like the two closets full of clothes she has never worn will do. :(

I got my direct deposit today of 1200.00 and I make about 75000.00 and wife works part time and makes about 15000.00. We got the full amount. I don't know how they figure the rebate.

Man I had the exact same thought when I did my taxes I figure why bother sending it to them when they will be sending it back and I will resend it to them on quarterly taxes...
