How Much Is My Rebate Check?

Rebate Check Rundown Part II

The tentative plan gives rebates of up to $600 for single taxpayers and $1,200 for married couples. The rebates would gradually phase out for single taxpayers whose incomes exceed $75,000 and couples with incomes over $150,000. The numbers are based on your 2007 gross adjusted income.

To see if you may be eligible to receive a check (if the bill passes) please just

Singles eligibility (add $300 extra for each dependent child):

  • If your income was less than $3,000 you wouldn't get a rebate.
  • If you didn't pay taxes and your income was more than $3,000, you’d get $300.
  • If you did pay taxes and your income was more than $3,000, your rebate would be $600.
  • Phase out rebates: an income of $75,000 would receive $600; $80,000 would get $350; $85,000 would receive $100; $87,700 would get nothing.

Couples eligibility (add $300 extra for each dependent child):

  • If your income was less than $3,000 you wouldn't get a rebate.
  • If you didn't pay taxes and your income was more than $3,000, you’d get $600.
  • If you did pay taxes and earned more than $3,000, your rebate would be $1,200.
  • Phase out rebates: an income of $150,000 would receive $1,200; $160,000 would get $700; $170,000 would receive $200; $174,000 wouldn't get a rebate.

We sure could use the money to pay off existing debt. I hope this passes.

I don't have much faith that this will happen....and WHY it is happening....but I sure could use that $600.

I think people without kids should get a bonus for not having kids and adding to the burden.

Bummer. Makes me wish I'd have worked enough to make at least $3000 so we'd be getting something back. And it's too bad we aren't married.

And... I'm getting nothing. But honestly, I don't mind at all. I'm quite happy that they decided to phase it out towards the upper income brackets. I'd rather people get the money who actually need it.

this is exciting news, although i'm not sure i'd qualify. i'm not sure if my parents are going to claim me this year (they didn't last year, but i moved back in with them in august so who knows.) i wonder if that would have an effect on my getting the extra 600? guess i'll just have to wait and see
