Hmm, global slump coming. Not that he\’s ever been optimistic mind, but this does seem exceptionally gloomy. But you pick your pundit and believe who you wish at this point really. One point:
The Bush rescue package – $800 in rebate cheques per household – has been rendered null and void by the latest spike.
I really don\’t see where that $800 number comes from.
How Much Will You Get?
Qualifying single filers (AGI less than $75,000) will get rebates of up to $600. Qualifying couples (AGI less than $150,000) will get rebates of up to $1,200, plus $300 per dependent child, with no maximum on the number of eligible children.
Persons who owe no income taxes, but earned at least $3,000 in income from Social Security and veterans disability will get rebate checks of $300 for individuals and $600 for couples.
