I Got My Important Message Letter From the IRS Today!

Oh awesome! Economic stimulus notification, here we go!

*tearing along the three perforations... oops.. sorta nicked a corner. Not to worry, I'm sure I can piece it together if I have to.

Dear Dave in Texas:

(ok, it really says Dear Taxpayer, which I certainly am one of so I think we have a personal relationship)

We are pleased to inform you...

Oh, really, no more pleased than I am to be informed!!

that the United States Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed into law the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 (this year!!1!), which provides for economic stimulus payments to be made to over 130 million American households (I gotta be one of those!!).

Oh yeah baby, I'm in like Flynn.

*reading further*

This seems to be a, what's the word, form letter? Nothing specific about my rebate amount.

*reads more*

nada

Wait, here's something.

For taxpayers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of more than $75,000 (or more than $150,000 if married filing jointly), this payment will be reduced or phased out completely.

Excuse me? Reduced? Phased out completely??!

I hereby declare my official opposition to this reckless and foolhardy plan on the part of the Congress and President George W. Bush. This is insanity.

*ponders a temporary divorce...


Naaahh.
