What to buy? More coins, more bullion or more Ethereum? Or all three? decisions, decisions, decisions.

    Ours might take us out to 2 nice dinners. Wish they would have kept it but I'll be tipping some extra $ to my bartenders.

    Was hoping to use for partial payment on a new zeroturn but looks like I will be sending it right back to Uncle Joe for additional taxes due. RGDS!

    Gave some to the family. Gave some to charity. The rest to Uncle Sam. Had too good a year in the market.

    Me too. I thanked everyone at work with kids, since they get the bill of $5700 each.

    When $200 billion in UE benefit money gets scammed why should anyone feel guilty or whatever about taking the money or when we finance incredible amounts of corporate welfare or jetsetting weekend golfers or other wasteful spending. Seems like we need to upgrade our accounting systems to better handle means testing.

    OTOH it's surprising who is getting the bennie. There are those who I would have thought would have been above the limits.

    I hope stimmy does not become a word because this should be the last ever stimulus.

    It will. All welfare programs have their own nicknames, e.g,, SNAP is better known as food stamps. Stimmy is nothing more than a trial ballon for univeral basic income.

    Just in case you have a 18 or soon to be 18 year old that you are not on the best of terms with...

    Neighbor came over. Single mom - kid turned 18 last October and moved out. Mom claimed them as she provided more than 50% of support. Got the stimmy money for 2020. Kid finds out about the free money from a friend and files their return and gets turned down for the stimmy money. Kid loses it with mom demanding the 'free' money. Mom agrees to amend her 2020 return. Problem is now 2021 money hits her account and it is based on 2020 return (2019 if 2020 not filed) and she gets hers and child's again. So now she has to figure out how to handle this one...

    I am pretty much my own bank except the one that's used for direct deposit and online billpay. It's like having that 2nd ebay account for the extra bux.

    Edit: And I changed my mind, me and momma's stimmy is going on the zeroturn. I'm banking on stimmy #4 before the tax bill is due.

    Well - they pull up an image of the cancelled check and see where you cashed or deposited it. Then they send a 'Withhold & Deliver' to the bank every 3 days until your paycheck hits and wipe out your account. Very little unknowns in the world these days...

    The stimulus goes to the household not to each individual. As long as it is spent on "household" stuff [or anything else for that matter] there's nothing that says kid is entitled to the "free" money. She doesn't have to give him squat if she doesn't want to. So $5600 to a "household" of 4 and whoever owns the account it goes into rules da money.

    The same pretty much applies to a joint tax refund, esp. in a marriage gone south. If the money is spent on legitimate stuff like a mortgage payment, the "stiffed" party has little chance of recovering anything.

    The stimulus is tied to the eligible individuals on a tax return. Once a person is 18 and files a tax return as an independent, they are entitled to the stimulus payment. That is the issue - the child filed a return for 2020 claiming to be independent and is therefore entitled to $1800. A parent could get into a battle with the child on the amount of support the parent provided versus the amount the child provided, but that will be drawn out and could get expensive...

    Since he has filed she could just give him the money and not claim him again. They can work it out between them about how much support each provided.
    Problem solved.

    If you had an estranged child, would you give the $1800 on the hope they don't pursue the refund with the IRS?

    In this case they pursued and failed so any money that I chose to give now or in the future would be the same way. One or the other, but not both.

    If the parents claimed the dependent on their 2020 return already then they are the eligible individuals to receive the money. If the parents didn't claim the dependent in 2020 and the dependent files a 2020 return now they can claim the $1800 from last year, and will be eligible for the $1400 third stimulus. There is no provision in the law that makes the parents repay any of the money from last year.

Maybe start a new thread about nursery rhymes and then make us a chart about them and how they correlate to every market. You can do it!
