While the idea of an economic stimulus package was introduced last month, the bill was just given the final sign-off yesterday by President Bush. He's calling the $168 billion package a "booster shot for our economy" and the bill includes rebates for individuals and tax breaks for businesses to promote spending by all. The checks will start going out in May but you have to file your 2007 tax return before you get the check. After you've filed your taxes there's nothing else you need to do to get your check, and if you receive your tax return through direct deposit than you'll get your rebate the same way. Now that we know the rebates are a sure thing, I'd like to know how you'll put yours to use — spend, save, pay off bills or invest?
