See, this is why we can't have nice things. You all F it up with your incessant politicking and bickering! And yes, I do have kids and was able to claim them on my taxes for last year.

No. We still get a dollar, but it's not the SAME dollar. So yes, you (yes you) bought it for me.

And that's your philosophication for today.
Did you give physical cash to the government? If so, you're right. If you gave an electronic version, then you got an electronic version back. Same electrons? No, but that's true when use a bank. Are you grateful to the bank for the money they give you every couple of weeks on payday, or is that your money?

By the way, I'm Canadian so I bought you squat.

I'm sorry if I f'd up your giddiness over your new toy, but I honestly see this as a problem in this country. Americans too often look at their tax return as a "gift" or "found money". It's not. It's yours. You worked hard for it. And the government takes more than it needs and doesn't spend it NEARLY as wisely as you would. And when it's time for them to repay, people feel as if it just fell out of the sky. OK, I'm done ruining your new mill now................

Ooo Ooo another thread on teaching people the pitfall of thinking the IRS is gifting everyone their tax refunds. I'm in!! Bernie, we don't agree on music but taxes... it's like a mind meld.

Now if you said it was a social security check... I might agree that you should thank us.

OT: funny story, my loser brother in law gets about $12,000 a year in SS disability for being diagnosed with ADD. He's probably never earned more than $5k a year on his own. In his grand ignorance, he actually proudly told me that he fought to keep getting the checks so he could "support" my sister (who by the way earns $60k on her own). Yeah buddy, great job... who the F do you think foots the bill for your A.D.D. check? ME.

Yeah...sorry TOJ. Congrats on the haul! I am looking forward to getting my new haul after the stimulus check.



Actually a credit is just that. I pay other people for my bills such as childcare and food and clothing for my child. The stuff I was talking about are credits and not write-offs. There is a difference.
I owned my own business with my brother a while back and I know what it's like to pay the gov't a quarterly estimated tax return. I've tried explaining to my wife that when she claims zippy on her W-4 that she is just hurting us...she just don't understand...
