So Are We Getting A 2009 Stimulus Check?

I think I read somewhere that a new stimulus bill for this year has been passed, but I can't find much information on it. Is this for individual tax-payers to get a check, or just more money for the corporations and banks to blow? If we do get a check, how and when do we get it, and how much will it be? Any information I find is either outdated from BEFORE it was supposedly passed, or pertains to the previous 2008 stimulus.

    There will be no new stimulus check for working taxpayers in 2009. For approximately 95% of America’s working families, their refundable tax credit of up to $400 for working individuals and up to $800 for working couples will be paid through a reduction of income tax withholdings (in other words, an increased paycheck). The reduced withholding is scheduled to start no later than April 1 of this year.

    There will be a one-time payment of $250 to retirees and disabled individuals receiving certain Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement benefits, and veterans' benefits. This payment will automatically be made to the appropriate individuals by the government. Retired government workers who do not receive Social Security benefits will be eligible to claim a $250 tax credit on their 2009 tax return.

  • There has been no word since Pres. Obama was elected about a stimulus check like the one Pres. Bush gave us. Most of the stimulus is going towards socialized healthcare, renewable energy, and saving some endangered mouse. Most of the time, silence from Capitol Hill is a big fat no, so I wouldn't expect anything.

    A refundable credit of up to $400/single and

    $800/married. Individuals who are employed or self-employed. Benefit starts to phase out at modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) = $75k/$150k.
