Free money from the gubment--

(I really hate the words "free money," but that's a semantic argument for later...)

I know a lot of my friends are underemployed, or unemployed, or students--this is just a note to say 1) it's possible for people that don't file a tax return normally to get the $600 federal bribe, and 2) we're not actually past deadline.

http://www.irs.gov/irs/article/0,,id=180250,00.html

According to this website, it's possible to file until October 15.

Anyway, this is my token "useful information" post for the year. We now return to discussions of food, whining, and spreadsheets.

Bear in mind though that the stimulus check is equal to the filer's tax liability. If the tax liability is less than $300, the check will be for no more than $300.

Ach, well, that reduces things somewhat.

True, but $300 is better than nothing ;?)

It may amount to nothing...my employer during '07 didn't take taxes out. I didn't make enough to file, so now I'm trying to find out if I'll actually get anything back...

Unless someone claimed you as a dependent, you should still qualify for the $300 minimum.
