Betty, how about your Dad??  Did you guys file a tax return for him for 2007?

No, Joel, we didn't.  I don't know which one of us kids would get the rebate if we did file on behalf of my dad.

I just knew, that because Bush thought up this whole thing, there would be a bunch of shit that happens.  He only gave the IRS 90 days to put this into action.  For those of you who got the stimulus, all I can say is lucky fuckers.  Since I had to refile, I don't even know if I'll get one.

Received my rebate check last week ,paid some bills off. Now this week broke again and my lawn mower decides to die off.  Trying to decide if i want to spend money to repair it, or buy a new model? It was new in 2002 and it is a Toro.    My life seems so normal compared to many of the persons I read about in these forums.   I mean even though I have had aids for six years, I work everyday. I own a home, I have insurance, I buy a new car every three years and I pay over $ 5000.00 in out of pocket medical expenses every year.  Like most americans I am in debt up to my eyeballs ! But what the hell if I die before I pay off the debt , what are they going to get?        I believe that if I can maintain decent health for another six years , I might pay down another $10,000 or $20,000 .   Life is what you make of it ! I try to make the most of it each day and do all I can to prove to people that hiv/aids does not mean my life is over.   I wish all of you eternal good health and happiness!!

I finally had a live conversation today (Saturday) with a person from the IRS.

I filed on time and am on the list for direct deposit payment on May 16th (yesterday)

The Internal Revenue Service may have my Stimulus Payment processed within the next few weeks  ;D  Have the best day

I read on the IRS site that what I should have done when I refiled, was to file an amended return.  Instead I refiled with a 1040 I got when I received the stimulus package info in the mail.  So, I printed the 1040X (amended) form out.  It's all horribly confusing and of course, since April 15 has come and gone, there are no more "free" tax services anywhere.  I filled it out the best I could.  I might just give up on this whole fucking thing.  It's a nightmare for me.

oh Betty. I feel for you. I gave up on trying to interpret all those forms and went to Mr Don to do my taxes. I had his 'fee' taken out of the return. I was to get my return direct deposited on the 9th and when it did not arrive, I called and like sonomabeach could not get through and finally found on the website that having the fee taken out for some reason negated the direct deposit option  ??? and I would have to wait for a paper check in June.. :-\ Like you, I give up..I'll believe it when I see it..

My Dear Queen,

I called 1. 800. 829. 1954 and got a living person after a 3 minute wait. They wanted SS#, Filing Status and Income.   Yesterday, the call would not go through and since... I have free long distance in the U.S., I called every number on the IRS site for California and no office in California was taking calls yesterday.

You remember when Medicare Part D was dumped on us?  It was dumped on us before anyone knew if it was going to work.  We had Project Inform come from San Francisco 4 times for conference as the legislation was being changed while the facilitator was enroute to the meetings. 

I think it was Betty who said the stimulus program was dumped on the IRS with 90 day notice.  I think it is believed IF a person has filed, that person will receive Stimulus within the next few months.

If it has been filed with routing and account numbers, it will be direct deposited and after the tax year docs are filed, no one can change their mind.  I did find out mine was in progress but it was on the list (as per the IRS website) for payment on the 16th.

My thoughts are we could get our payment in the next few months and it may come via check or direct deposit.  Have the best day
Michael

I'm thinking I might go to the local IRS office Monday or Tuesday so they can explain what the hell I'm supposed to do.  That's their job, right?  Of course, I'm not expecting much; hopefully that way, I won't be too disappointed.

Hey Betty,

The recorded message for all the listed offices on the IRS who are not taking calls say, "appointments are not necessary, if you have any questions, visit your local field office."  ;D  Have the best day

Hi Betty

If you are having trouble with completing the tax forms, there's a free tax assistance service available for folks earning under about $40,000 per year.  Here's a description from the IRS website

"Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA)
The VITA Program offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income (generally, $40,000 and below) people who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Certified volunteers sponsored by various organizations receive training to help prepare basic tax returns in communities across the country. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. Most locations also offer free electronic filing. To locate the nearest VITA site, call  1-800-829-1040"

The 800 line might know if there are still some sites open after tax season.

There's also an elderly tax assistance program run by AARP, but I suspect you are too young (Not sure the same applies to me  :'( since I read about them in my AARP mag )

Details on both are at

Thanks, guys.  I think tomorrow I'll be visiting the local IRS office.  Of course, I may go Tuesday when I'm going to be in that part of town, given the price of gas.

I am still in stimulus limbo. I haven't gotten a check or a Dear Jane letter saying that I am not getting one. Mine was due on May 9th but then after talking to someone at their 800 number, I was told those of us on disability will be the last ones to get them. Strange though, a few people I know on disability has gotten theirs. Now my date has changed to the first or second week of June. I'm guessing I'll get my rebate check before I get my stimulus check. ::)

Dear Queen, don't feel bad.  I haven't gotten one and because of the filing fuck-up, don't when when or if I'll get one.  Oh well.

Our's still hasn't come and we've passed the 2-week "delay" schedule.  Oh, well.  We're self-employed and paid our mandatory self-employment taxes even though, after deductions, we showed a negative income.  The government is  quick to receive, but slow to give. :-\  Honestly, I hadn't even thought about it again until I saw this thread.

Funny you say that about them being slow to give out money when we're suppose to get it but quick to snatch it when you owe it. I have been saying that for the longest time. I am past their 2 week delay too and the last thing I was told was the first or second week of June. I'll probably be back here whining next week too.
