Stimulus Interruptus

Posted By on Tue, Jun 17, 2008 at 3:21 PM

Who among us has not received your stimulus check yet?

According to the IRS Web site, my check was supposed to be mailed May 30.

Somewhere after digging deeper, I found that it said to allow two weeks. Also people are supposed to receive a letter saying how much they're getting. Personally, I think that's a waste of postage and paper -- but whatever -- our government encourages a wasteful socieity.

I have not received that wasteful letter yet, either.

I called 1-866-234-2942, and it encourages you to use the Web site, which doesn't really have much info on it. Even at 1 a.m., the tired recorded message says that the lines are busy, and there's a considerable wait which is B.S. Stay on the line.

You can enter some info, and it is supposed to tell you the status of your check, but it really doesn't.

The message blabbered on and said to wait 8 weeks ... until hell freezes over and then to check back.

I don't owe any back taxes, and I mailed my payment before April 15, so there should be no problem.

Today I read where some people are getting two stimulus checks. Some are errors, but some are correct because of a previous malfunction.

Oh, well ... by the time I get mine, you will all have spent yours.
