    What’s your opinion on proposed stimulus checks?

    Wanna know what you guys think of this stimulus check, and how it’s laid out as of now.
    Im trying to wrap my head around why the check wouldn’t go to every tax paying citizen
    and why if you make 100k you would get nothing.

    Help me change my mind, I’m a bit annoyed at that it seems to me people act like if you make 100k
    your “financially bulletproof “. I mean if you do make that type of money but your sitting at home now
    dont you still need assistance? If you make 6 figures don’t you typically have more expensive obligations?
    maybe a higher mortgage or car payment or ... you get the idea.

    I really don't know what to think at this point as I don't know how bad it will get.

    Do I prefer for American taxpayer money to go taxpayers rather than foreign wars? Yes. I don't know why we don't cut all foreign aid right now and make sure it all goes to help Americans.

    You can be making a million and not be bulletproof depending your industry if money coming in suddenly goes to zero. I don't think anyone except the absurdly wealthy are bulletproof if liquidity dries up.

    They say they want to make a huge payment. Ok, go ahead, but those dollars are going to devalue a lot of dollars as printing a trillion will cause inflation but what else do you do?

    I'd like to just do the payment and make China pay the trillion or whatever it ends up being. A wash essentially.

    Yes, please route the money to Americans but all Americans. My job is considered “essential “ right now and so far not
    gonna shut us down but we solely rely on paying customers so I don’t know where this will go. Besides the ridiculously wealthy
    everyone could use some help right now

    They say the lockdown may go 10-12 weeks. 3 months, really?

    I mean, we will all be needing checks at that point.

    That’s right, so... can anybody explain for instance your a commission employee that
    made great money in 2018( govt supposed to be going off that year return) but your money is dependent on people spending (which people aren’t now)
    according to the government you don’t need help now. TF is that?

    You sure it's off 2018? I certainly hope so...

    Some of you may want to hold off on filing if it means they go by 2018 instead of 2019:

    Once the stimulus measure is passed by the House and signed into law, distributions would come via the IRS, which would use 2019 taxpayer forms to determine how much a person's check should be and where it should be sent. If 2019 taxes have yet to be filed, the IRS would use information from taxpayers' 2018 forms.

    Yep, might wanna wait if it benefits you. Too late for me already filed long time ago. They are also extending property taxes if you need an extension.
