View Full Version : Stimulus Checks

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will likely receive a economic stimulus check from the government.

It is indeed a very exciting program and I’ll attempt to explain it by using a Q&A format:

Q: What is an Economic Stimulus?
A: It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q: Where will the government get this money that they are sending to the taxpayers?
A: From the taxpayers.

Q: Is the government simply giving me back my own money then?
A: No, only a smidgen of it.

Q: What is the purpose of this payment?
A: The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high definition tv
television set, a new iPad or a new SUV, thus stimulating the economy.

Q: Isn’t that stimulating the economy of China?
A: Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy with your stimulus check. Use it wisely.

* If you spend the stimulus money at Walmart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka.

* If you purchase a computer, the money goes to India, Taiwan or China.

* If you purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras or
Guatemala.

* If you buy a fuel efficient car the money will go to Japan or Korea.

* If you purchase useless stuff, it goes to Taiwan.

Instead, keep the money in America by”
(1) Spending it at a yard sale, or
(2) Going to a ballgame, or
(3) Spending it on prostitutes, or
(4) Buying beer, or
(5) Buying a tattoo

These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.

CONCLUSION:
Go to a ballgame with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day.

No need to thank me - I’m just glad I could be of help.

Has anybody here on the forum received a stimulus check yet? They said direct deposits would start on 4-6-20 but today is the 9th and I have yet to hear of anybody getting one.

Likewise, SBA advances were supposed to start on 4-3-20 but I have not heard of anybody getting any of those promised funds either.

Sort of reminds me of the link below.

I heard that they were supposed to start sending checks the week of April 13, and should be finished with those people who have filed with direct deposit by April 24. Then they will start sending out checks to those who do not have direct deposit.

Unfortunately, some pundits have suggested that the las paper checks won’t go out until August because of the slow, outdated process. That will be too late for most of the people who really need it.

Jackie Gleason, 1916-1987, known as the 'The Great One' ...... for an interesting biography on Jackie Gleason, suggest you go to Wikipedia and read the section on his early life .......

"Jackie Gleason was a staunch supporter of the Republican Party and eventually became good friends with Richard Nixon. Gleason and Nixon would golf together."

The PPP provision in the C.A.R.E. act would be a huge help to small business' but its first come first served until the money runs out.
Money will be forgiven that is used for payroll, utilities,rent and interest on mortgages which would be a huge help, especially
to restaurants
Understandably,there was a huge run on the banks nationwide on friday when the applications were first accepted but there were some obstacles.
We got ours in at 10a.m. on friday thinking it was good to get in early.At 3pm my bank contacted me to let me know that SBA wanted payroll records since the amount of the loan is based on payroll.Had to scramble to get that done, since we use a payroll service but called them and they helped out.
At 7 pm we were notified by my bank that SBA now wants tax returns.We paid in May and had them on file so we rushed back to the office and got them right in.
We read every page of the C.A.R.E Act and no mention was made of needing these records or we would have had them ready when we first applied.
My point is that I believe this probably happened to nearly everyone that applied so there probably will be a delay in distributing the money.
It's understandable that they are overwhelmed

Yesterday in the daily Covid 19 update Mike Pence said the stimulus checks are on targeted to go out as promised beginning next Friday (April 17th).:confused:

Ummm. replay back to March the checks would begin going out from IRS on April 9th!

The SBA gov site for loan requirements was updated everyday since last Friday as they inserted verification requirements daily. The updates went into Tuesday. Banks finally began releasing money for PPP on Wednesday.

So you're blaming the speaker for the Treasury's slow distribution of checks from a program that only a Democrat could love?

Seriously, I do not understand how any self-respecting Republican could like the idea of checks being mailed to every American with no hint of how to pay for them.

Went through something similar with our local bank, thought we had all the correct forms filled out, all the necessary backup information, but then the bank asked for the latest copy of our bank statement. :confused: Yes, the latest statement from them, the same bank we've been dealing with for 20+ years, that holds the mortgage to our building.

Come to find out,we were the first PPP loan they were processing, so they were a little lost themselves. Happy to report we were fully funded this morning.

Not to put a damper on all the fun stuff people can do with their stimulus checks, but it’s disturbing to me that the people who really NEED the money haven’t received it yet! The lines of people lined up at food banks across the country just blew our minds...thousands of people needing help and food for their families. It also blew what was left of our minds that people seem not to save a dime for hard times.

Part of my comment is sarcastic because we don't really need it—I'll be doing what I think is important, though, and putting it back into the economy (the ski and gear was paid cash last month with inheritance money, given us a bit of extra spending coin).

If nothing else, this crisis has highlighted the debt problem across the country. Federal debt is now well over $20 trillion. State and municipal governments almost equal that amount. And personal debt again approaches that amount. The past several decades seem to have a "spend all you want, we'll print more" attitude. Which is great, until hyper-inflation kicks in.


Anyway, if you're still looking for areas to spend your stimulus check (just heard from my credit union that ours will be in our account 4/15), try a local musician, especially one who uses American-made instruments... :D

I am on Social Security and receive a monthly direct deposit, Sue is still working. We have not filed our 2019 Taxes and did not receive a refund last year, 2018.

Looking for a place to verify they have our correct/current info. Any suggestions. ?

Yes, I thought about that soon after I hit send. There is nothing funny about domestic violence. Three reflections/reasons I did not delete:

First, I remember Ralph as a loving husband who never harmed Alice in any way. She never believed him when he said "to the moon", I'm pretty sure she smirked. He also said stuff like "I'm king, you're nothing", during episodes when it was crystal clear than she was the queen, and he the court jester.

Second, lots of great art is full of contradiction and tension. Tony Soprano is a loving family man, Walter White a bookworm. Springsteen's "Born in the USA" pairs patriotic uplifting music with a harsh indictment of the USA's mistakes. It is Ralph's bluster paired with his love inside the home and ineptitude outside that makes the show.

Third, it's been a long time, memory is a funny thing. I will try to watch again, and I will take down my salute if I come to agree with your point.

This morning the IRS finally activated the stimulus portal to check on your refund status. I found when I logged in they didn't have my bank info.

If you go to https://www.irs.gov/refunds and register you can find the status of your refund, or enter your direct deposit information if necessary....

Only took about five minutes to do.

Frankly I find that it is still somewhat "funny," even in this day and age, which begs the question: why did, and why would, enlightened people think threats of DV are "funny?"

I don't fault you for posting, nor do I fault you or I for laughing: I merely wonder why we thought and still think it is "funny?"

I have a client who just had his wife jailed on a threat she made to shoot him: she's charged with a felony.

Some time ago a woman said she was moving out that coming weekend: while moving out her husband shot her, her lady friend who was helping her move, and himself.

That's reality, and it's no laughing matter.

Glad you’re not a victim of a spouse who treated you in an abusive manner. As someone who was subject to so much gaslighting by a spouse who gave me the ultimate FU by committing suicide and leaving a note saying I pushed him over the edge, I am not so cavalier about this type of stuff.

Oddly enough, those above that take issue with these checks are the very same people that want (dare I say need) income from the very people that are receiving them.

I will admit upfront that I spent the money on a new AR. I obviously did not "need" one, but .....

So for those that are so offended.... Simply refuse to sell lunch/dinner or refuse to rent a room to those that you feel are costing you money. That, after all is your right!

My company borrowed $367K as part of the same Paycheck Protection Program, so I'll fill in a few blanks:

The program is really well intentioned--it allows a company to borrow 2.5 months' worth of payroll, and then forgives the entire amount if the company does not fire employees between now and June. So essentially the government is covering your payroll expenses under the condition that you do not fire anyone.

But the problem is that there is no real requirement that a company "need" the money. So even if your business was doing fine, you could still get the loan. The real determinant of who got the first round of loans was companies who were able to complete the (very easy) paperwork instantly and also had good relationships with their banks. We were lucky to have a very good relationship with a small local bank, so we avoided the horror stories.

Who has good relationships with big banks who doled out the lion's share of the loans. If you guessed large, sophisticated companies with plenty of financial resources, you'd be correct.

Who cannot get the free money? The people who need it most. Restaurants who laid everybody off, but still have to pay rent and are going to have a miserable time even after they are allowed to reopen, just for example.

Flying Scott, you and I agree! We “borrowed“ $1,360,000. Obviously we are not the target audience to this program. However, we employ about 55 people and it is going to them. As someone who has only contributed my whole adult working like, I don’t feel too guilty other than burdening my kids with the debt! However, when I go, I think they’ll be okay! ;-)

I checked once a day and got a message that no data was available. Then one day it asked for additional info and said it would be processed.

Still waiting to see when it shows up in my bank account.

We are also retired, not disabled, and we didn’t receive the stimulus check either. We qualify....go figure.


Please be more proactive. My oldest son who was technically furloughed but given his job we are not sure whether it will be there when this nonsense is over and my youngest son both received stimulus checks. Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the grease. My suggestion is to be a pain in the you know what. Good luck!

Just now checked the “get my payment” IRS site where we were just getting the “no information” for the last few weeks and had given up on checking...to our surprise, it asked for “more info” so we put the info in and it said “YOU WILL HAVE YOUR STIMULUS DIRECT DEPOSITED!”

If you have SS checks electronically deposited and/or you get tax REFUNDS electronically deposited- you should be good to go.

The misguided thought process was that unemployment alone would not be enough to keep the economy moving and keep people fed. Because of the short time they had to pass the bill they came up with that $600 extra as opposed to creating a formulation approach.

My daughter, a hair dresser, lost her employment when they closed the salon at the beginning of this fiasco. Single mom with my 4 yr old granddaughter and a mortgage. She immediately applied for unemployment and when they calculated her benefit it came to $72/week. Their calculation formula, as the state law mandates, did not include her last (so many, months, not sure) of her income and she appealed that most of her “better” income had come in that “omitted” time period. They would not adjust anything and her benefit was to be $72.
Then they came out with the $600 deal and that lifted her spirits a bit.
She has since received the stimulus money for her and her daughter but has yet to see any unemployment benefit. (As of last week when I asked her)
Many will take advantage of that $600 and will not want to work but that is not the case with my daughter.

A great illustration of how so many getting the $600 bump are often shorted in other ways. Plus, as I'm sure she's calculated, she's in big trouble if the stimulus runs out before the economy is back to full steam. As my hair stylist pointed out to me in 2008--when everybody changes from a haircut every 4 weeks to a haircut every 5 weeks, her already modest income drops by 20%.:eek:

The good news here for the rest of us--your daughter will likely spend every penny of the $600. This is not true of the $1200 recipients, many of whom will save some or all of the cash. Nothing wrong with that, but it will not stimulate the economy.

Give her a hug from the rest of us

No accusation here and no knowledge of this situation: But many people in jobs that rely heavily on tips do not report ALL of their income for tax purposes. (There's a surprise!)

That may save when it comes to paying taxes but doesn't help when something like a stimulus check is based on the income reported on the tax return. That is an example of "gaming the system" that didn't work out.

Again, I do not know what applies in this situation.

Absolutely! I do believe tips are a huge part of income in many professions.
I usually give my dog groomer$20-$25 for a $45 grooming...I have heard over the years that women tip generously for salon work as well. I always tip waitresses well more than 20%. I don’t know what my daughters tip “income” was but I agree with your comments.

I agree that people like Hill's daughter should be getting more, and some $1200 recipients less. But maybe his "cause" was a food bank that has seen demand double over the past few weeks because so many hairdressers, waiters, and others are out of work? That would have been a much better use of the money that sending it back or refusing it. Food banks and pantries are especially hard hit now, not only are more people in need, but donations of food are drying up.

When I was in high school, I worked as a delivery boy for a corner-store pharmacy- way before CVS/Rite Aid/Walmart (you get it). This was in a city with a population of today's Manchester, but higher population density.

The owner was a great guy- young and business minded.

We delivered to MANY welfare recipients (some addresses were on slummy streets, others were in actual ghettos). I can remember going to some of these places having back-yard beer parties/plenty of cigarette smoking/and other!

To be fair, some addresses were in different type neighborhoods and deliveries were to disabled people.

I remember hearing a conversation he (the owner) once had with another adult. The other asked him why he encouraged welfare.

His response: They pay full price, and they pay on time!

Each state has different laws regarding unemployment. In CA. if you are called back by your employer and do not go...your unemployment stops! If the call back has less hours than you originally had, then unemployment will make up the different of the reduction. The $600.00 from the Feds may or may not have any impact as the way benefits are calculated they in general would only cover you for about 60% to 70% of your normal wage.

With no, or little savings, and an income I would not find adequate. Several of them get hit with an unexpected $200 expense...Auto repair, failing appliance, etc. and they can't afford it. I have stepped in to help when I can but the demand could be (will be) endless. A blip in their life, like losing their minimum wage job, is devastating.

I would venture the guess that most people on this Forum are "relatively" well off financially...Probably retired with a 401K, IRA, SSI, savings, etc...Maybe a new Jet Ski?

Food banks are overrun because their clientele lives paycheck to paycheck, with virtually nothing in the bank, if they even have a bank account. So when you say "will receive", that's a problem for those already on the edge. The Greater Boston Food Bank, just for example, has seen its daily demand double because of this.

Their donations are drying up because they get lots of free food from supermarkets and others that have excess. The empty shelves that we've seen are reflective of excess food in the food chain drying up. Also, shrinking incomes and stock portfolios leave many cash donors with less to give.

So they are squeezed at both ends. If you'd like to make a donation, here's a link: https://www.gbfb.org/

The check, made out to her, with my name and address listed as "c/o," even had "DCSD" (deceased) after her name.

Now I have to return it.


Now why doesn't that surprise me. And it just makes more work for you too.

It’s difficult to realize that anyone, even someone immersed in bureaucracy, could be that brain dead when it comes to sending a check to a deceased person. Since I have too much time on my hands, I decided that perhaps that person didn’t understand what DCSD stood for. Here are some of the possibilities: Domestic Commission for Sexual Deviants, Democratic Committee on Senile Dementia, Dedicated Choreographers of Social Distancing, Deranged Candidate Seeking Delegates, and so on.

.It requires the company to report back to the state that the employee refuses to come back. Not a way to build employee/employer relations.

Why do you just litter these threads with news feeds we can all read elsewhere online? Don't you have any original thoughts of your own that you would like to share?

If you read up-thread, the US food supply is becoming increasingly imperiled.

I wish I could say it's an original thought, but this virus could fundamentally alter this country's future and put China ascendant.

China's influence has already crept into the US media, and is increasingly funding and inserting media correspondents. Note the reluctance to mention China and coronavirus in the same news story.

Corruption by China has even reached Congress!

Congress' corruption may lead to November's mail-in ballots, affecting mostly "swing states" and their electoral votes.

While you are counting your blessings, next time you’re shopping for food for your own family, why not stock up on some pasta, rice, canned goods and other staples for your local food bank? People are hurting, and whether or not they’ve mismanaged their finances and neglected to save for a rainy day, this is not the time for any of us to be critical. Be generous.

Heath's used to have bags setup that you could buy at checkout and then they went to the food bank. I haven't noticed them recently.

Food banks are overrun because their clientele lives paycheck to paycheck, with virtually nothing in the bank, if they even have a bank account. So when you say "will receive", that's a problem for those already on the edge. The Greater Boston Food Bank, just for example, has seen its daily demand double because of this.

Their donations are drying up because they get lots of free food from supermarkets and others that have excess. The empty shelves that we've seen are reflective of excess food in the food chain drying up. Also, shrinking incomes and stock portfolios leave many cash donors with less to give.

So they are squeezed at both ends. If you'd like to make a donation, here's a link: https://www.gbfb.org/

Thank you. I went to their site, I wish they had a paypal option. I find it to be more secure and easier. There is a food pantry in Moultonborough that I just donated to https://www.foodpantries.org/ci/nh-moultonborough

My recollection is that the food bags at Heath’s were available during the various holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. That’s a good idea, but I would rather make my own selections.

That seems incredibility rude. Counting my blessings? That has no bearing on my prior question!

Had you seen my prior non-covid posts, you would know that I volunteer AND I donate to organizations. Please don't try to make me look like I hold myself "above" others!

You, Outdoorsman, clearly have a reading or comprehension problem. My response had nothing to do with your post, but was a response to dickiej’s. There was nothing in my post that was rude, nor was there any intention to offend anyone. Most of us have a lot to be grateful for, and my point was that while we are counting our blessings, we should be thinking of others and stocking up on things to donate to others. So....get off your high horse and do something constructive for someone else.

Well then color me confused. If you volunteer at these organizations, how can you not understand?
