[quote=SnappyBob;2613379]Well they finally have it pretty much hammered out. We're gonna get some kind of rebate. It looks like it may be as much as $600 each.

I hear you have to claim it as income on your 2008 taxes in 2009.

Pay off debt first and foremost, and buy some season passes for Seaworld.

It's funny to look at everyone's responses! As soon people get money , they want to spend it! lol

With my daughters refund, we're gonna put all of it in her college fund, she's only one yrs old by the way

And with our tax refund we are invtesing it, in mutual funds and some in the stock market.

I'm only 23 and all my friends blow their refund within the 1st week they get it, it's really sad

That's the thing, it is the American way to spend, spend, spend. I would venture to say that most people have a need for instant gratification. Not gonna lie, I'm guilty of it myself. Kuddos to y'all. I wish I had that kind of self-discipline with our money.

You're right! But it would beneifit them more if they saved, and invested the money. But oh well, people just don't wanna do that.

A great point. At least when we steal the SS and medicare from our children we are sneaky about it. It will take them years to figure out how we have screwed them.

The problem with the refund is that it is such obvious theft.
