    IRS rebate notice

    I just got my tax rebate notice in the mail. After seeing and reading it, I couldn't beleive the Gov. spent $42 million dollars to send out this mailer. So I was just wondering, how many people thought it was worth the money spent?

    Just a reminder, whatever money you recieve, you will be made to pay income taxes on that income on your 2008 return! So save 1/3 of it to pay back to the Gov. next year...or just get a lower refund back than you normally would of.

    Not going to qualify for a rebate. Maybe that is good. Who knows.
    My taxes will probably go up since they had the rebate.

    I have a brilliant idea, they could have put that page in the envelope with the freaking check and saved all that postal labor.

    Of course if our government was capable of creating an efficient streamlined organization, we wouldn't have Fed Ex and UPS would we?

    Can you varify this??

    From what I read that is NOT correct.

    I have not seen this before so I guess one really needs to contact the IRS to verify it, as the website says to do. All I know is that the Stimulus Tax bill that was passed says nothing about this. Maybe there was some provision/regulation that came afterward that clarified the issue. Thanks for the heads up.
