Good News for the Econony

April 8, 2008 at 8:28 am | Posted in Bush, Current Events, government, government spending, government waste, political commentary, stupidity, taxes | 4 Comments

It is only April 7th and I have just finished, filed, and paid my taxes.  This may cause great concern for my welfare among my friends, family, and the IRS as they know it has been my M.O. to do nothing but fret about the fact that I need to file my taxes until about October 14th (the end of the extension period).  Even I am baffled at how I managed to pull this off.  Perhaps I will wake up and discover it was all a crazy dream.

Now for that good news I promised, about the economy.  I worked very little last year and made a pitifully small amount of money.   When I arrived at the bottom line on my aforementioned tax returns I had a balance due of $603.00. However, my pitiful income qualified me for a $300.00 earned income credit reducing my obligation to $303.00.  TurboTax informed me that I will receive an economic stimulus rebate of $300.00.  I paid my taxes with a credit card for which I was charged a $7.50 convenience fee, bringing my total outlay to $310.50.  I’m getting a $25 refund from the state.  Add to that my 300.00 rebate, I am now ahead by a grand total of $14.50 with which I promise, my fellow Americans, to go forth and stimulate the economy…so you can put away all your fears about the looming recession.

Let the spending frenzy begin!  Oh, where do I start?
