117 million families would receive a tax rebate check under a deal reached to provide stimulus to the U.S. economy.

individuals would receive tax relief of up to $600, while married couples would see help up to $1,200, plus $300 per child.

Awesome... I could really use extra money back on my tax return...
Will have to read this when I get back from class to see if its applicable to me.

I also know my parents would REALLY need the help!

117 million families, or 117 million checks out the door, should cover just about everybody...based upon the 2.5 family model ;)

Yup, part of their new stimulus package. Not sure if it'll work or not, just wondering if the people receiving the money will spend it (as by the plans design) or save it..

I shall blow mine on beer.. :P

I thought they were only going to do $300 per individual and $600 per couple if they made more than $3,000 and less than $45,000 or so. Either way I don't really qualify since they don't really accept the money I try to give them for taxes.

The deal originally had something about improving infrastructure, but I guess it got axed if they'll be doing $600 per individual...

Yeah, they frown on taking Monopoly money for taxes, Timaxe. Unless it has Bushy-poo's face on it.

Me, I'm buying a new shotgun with mine. Nice little Remington over-n-under 12 gauge.

I'll put it in my savings account to be used to pay off my credit card debt once my 0% interest runs out.
