If you don't need anything give it back to the government.

Well, I'd sooner give it to someone else who needs it more than I do.

Earlier today, I got an email from Turbo Tax with a link to a calculator to help me determine (I already knew) if, when and how much I might be getting from the government from the new stimulus package... About normal.... Nothing...

Just 5 digits worked for me.

Ours is coming 3-17. Half already spent on a coffee table and the tree trimmers will get the rest (and more) the day after.

Easy come, easy go!

There is a tracker on the IRS website to see when yours is scheduled to hit your account.

Neither, it also accepts overseas post codes, and our son entered his street address and UK post code. A UK post code is a variable number of letters and digits so we were shocked when it worked. We just made sure the format matched exactly that used on his 2019 tax return.

Ours is also scheduled for 3/17. I was actually a little surprised not to be the group this weekend. We filed our 2020 return on 2/12. One reason I filed it early was that using the 2019 return we would not be eligible for the entire amount but we are using the 2020 return.

Anyway -- considering that 3/17 is still less than a week after the bill was signed I can't really complain.

Well, if you’ve got the notice, it’s not zero - I think they managed to fix that bug in the 80’s, unless they’ve reintroduced it in some newfangled system.

Why do you think it is too much?

Also, there is no claw back process. You can keep the money. If you feel morally obligated, just make a payment on the national debt.

At this point I don't think it matters much lol. Just think of the USA debt as bitcoin, it doesn't have to make sense, just get more of it!

Ours also shows the 17th and we leave Sunday for an extended camping trip thru Ga.Ala,& Fla. Back home on 4/4 for 2 weeks then we planning to head for Texas to see Bluebelles, visit some old friends & just enjoy blowing some dough! Haven't made up our mind about the Grand Canyon yet. Whether to go ahead and do it then or wait until fall.
