Yes. $1,500. We're dividing it up into thirds. They go into the vacation fund (want to save to go to Kauai in 1 year), reduce debt and general savings. The thirds may not sound like much, but it all adds up over time.

no... disqualified, because I took advantage of the low capital gains tax and cashed in a bunch of real estate in Jan 2007.

cash is king for the time being, just no rebate

I'm pretty sure I'm getting one. I'm single so I think it only works out to 300 bucks! LOL. I had forgotten about them until I saw this thread. I just furnished my new place and I went on vacation in January so I'll probably just deposit it somewhere.

My tax professional says I will be getting one. The question is will it be enough to do more than fill up the gas tank in both vehicles.......

for those not getting this year, no worries. There is always next year (where I predict they will give even more.)
