  • Not OT at all...Rebate check

    Anyone seen their check yet?
    I've got a low SS# and I hear they're going by that.

    I've got tooling to buy!

        What got me going on that is I tried calling sharpening services yesterday to do some endmills.

        Now....this is Connecticut.
        Used to be sharpening services around every corner.
        There are still several but none that really want to fool with HSS and many who aren't doing much carbide either!

        So unless I do my own, HSS is disposable tooling at best.
        And with my eyes and hands the way they are I guess indexable tooling
        is in my future.

        So I need some bucks!

              I've always wondered why they just don't reduce the amount you owe on the next tax filing date. Instead, our money loops in through their system, is subjected to internal frictions, and then some of it is bounced back to us.

              How much does the process of the rebate cost?

                That wouldnt work for everyone. My tax base has changed.. Its a rebate from last years taxes as I understand it. Which works great for me, my tax base is a whole lot less this yeah due to unemployment, well, its actually called retirement but still the same. LOL

                And for the cost of processing, not much. Say pennies on the dollar if that much. Figure the percentage, not the overall cost for processing. Take it down to the individual checks, or electronic deposit. Its a small fraction of what they are actually paying you. The major cost comes from the actual rebate. Which if you paid taxes you shouldnt care so much.. JR

                  My SSN ends in a high number, so I'm supposed to get mine in July. All the stuff in the stores will be gone by then.

                    For a country that claims we need more resources for every thing government offers, this 'stimulus' (vote buying) by those in office wanting to stay in office is insane. There is bipartisanism in action.

                    I'm going to get my septic tank pumped with part of it since a load of ---- seems to be an appropriate use for this load of ----.

                    At least I'll spend it in my local economy.

                    Btw, 39, deposit 5/6.

                      "I'm going to get my septic tank pumped......."

                      There's a company in Tallahassee that pumps septic tank. Their motto is:
                      We want your stinkin' business.
