What would you do if the US Treasury sent you $1,000

I don't think they're being issued by God, so no.

Also, does the $500/dependent only apply to families below the $100k threshold, or all dependents are eligible for $500 regardless?

So people making over $100k that get furloughed are SOL? Put the for sale sign out front!

Luckily there aren't that many of us in that scenario, what with the (alleged) eradication of the middle class and all...

Save it to pay the Gov't when they ask for it back on April 15th.

I believe you have til July 15th. Put it in a savings account for 5 months at .025 and you'll have a whopping $1000.12. Please don't check my math.

1. Turn check into stack of cash.
2. Pose for pictures holding stack like a telephone.
3. Get a Facebook account and see if Vic will friend me.

I know it's absurd, but how does that work? If they wanna give us all money, why just literally mail us a check? Do the "printing" with the check printer?

It's a serious question. Naive and uninformed, but serious. I'm asking about the relationship with the Treasury, Fed and and banks and Congress, on a basic level.

They can access your direct deposit info from your tax return?

With the 2008 tax rebate, they mailed checks.  They will still do that for many, but they also have direct deposit info for a lot of folks from tax returns, like js1 said.    They want people spending the money fast.  Or paying credit card bills, or mortgages  or whatever, to keep the banks, lenders, retailers, etc. going   

I keep thinking they are going to fuck this up royally, and leave out a lot of people who need it the most, while many of us toss it in our savings or buy video games or whatever.

I’d be pissed that more money is being wasted. Then, I’d buy a suppressor, HK Mark 23, PvS-14, or another full-size carry pistol.

Not sure if I’ll make the cut on receiving anything, if so I plan on blowing it all at local mom and pop places. AC compressor is starting to go on my truck so 1k is going to my local auto shop either way.

There’s a couple of non-chain restaurants that I frequent. I’ll probably order takeout and throw in a couple of hundred dollar tip at each place.

As I recall, money is deposited from the treasury into specific banks contracted with the treasury department and then the banks along with an intermediary transfer the money out to individual accounts for a small transaction fee. At least that was how it worked when I was involved with an intermediary that did this for the treasury department 10 years ago.

If you consider a select few candidates will get a percentage of Billions of dollars in transactions, a fuck ton of companies are going to be lining up for the bid or bitching they didn't get the bid.

The $10,000 student loan cancellation would have been nice and done a lot to stimulate discretionary spending in my household, but looks like that will be one of the obvious concessions from the house to reach a deal.

Can't say I'd be in favor of an outright cancellation, but a multi month deferment or reduction seems totally acceptable.  

I'm in the over $100k crowd, and self employed  so I don't see any relief coming, but I'll quickly be in the under $100K if clients don't start calling in a few months.  Right now I have work that will get me thru for a while.

The wife isn't in the over $100k group so I assume we'll get something, but it's token at best when you factor in a mortgage, office rent utilities, food, etc.

Wife and I are both in this position.  We will see no relief, but if my clients are not at work I am not getting paid.  So this should make for some interesting few months for me.  She will still be fully employed and fine.  Me........depending on how long this lasts I may not.

I was getting ready to send out a round of invoices, and frankly feel a bit weird about it right now.

I've got a client who's ignored a past due invoice for a decent amount of money. This is kind of uncharted territory.  Don't wanna be the dick threatening legal action with all the shit going down. but it's been going on for a couple months now.

The package would give one-time direct payments to Americans — $1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year, and $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with $500 payments per child.

I won't be seeing anything from this.  But you know that individual who makes $75,001/year is cussing right now.

Should be almost 100k per single person and 150 for married couples

Should probably change the title to "what will you do when the U.S. treasury sends you a lump of coal?"

What does that translate into in terms of hand sanitizer and TP?

And for those who provided their bank info (such as those getting a return), it’ll go right in at some future date.   Apparently based on 2019 if you filed early, or 2018 taxes.   Checks will take weeks longer.

Sounds like it will be one-time, could push into late April/May because of staffing issues due to virus.

Found more info:

Quote

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said they hope to start issuing checks within three weeks, with the remainder of the checks to be mailed by the end of May. However, the stimulus bill does not provide a specific timeline for payment distributions.

“We want to make sure Americans get money in their pockets quickly,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said last week. “As soon as Congress passes this, we will get this out in three weeks.”

But that’s subject to change obviously, for those getting checks.

Is this where we all start posting how much money we make?

Yup.  Honestly it is good that it is means tested.  It isn’t “nothing” but it needs to be for the hardest hit.  The corporate bailout is pure horseshit and will he used for more buybacks indirectly.

It's phased out right? So that person will still get something.

I've only given it a quick glance but it looks like a lot of people will fall through the cracks. I'm thinking of self-employed and contractor types that did well in 2018 but are currently not bringing in the same level of income.
