    I tried the IRS form to fill in if you can get the money on your bank account instead by mail. The weird thing inthe form was you could only fill in if you "paid" or got money back on your last tax return. Only those two items. Nothing at all if you had nothing to pay them or got no return. Thus since I neither paid or got an return I could not fill in those "boxes". Thus the whole thing did not work and was "red" lined just for that subject. I guess they lost their mind here, as always. What a country; they all live in la la land and can't even design an "form". Crazy! I saw on an "comment" list that more people had the same problem. It says nowhere that if your tax return is such that you don't owe money or have to pay money that you then are not getting this "$1200" . Comments?

    It's a mystery to me.

    I mailed my state and local forms on February 2, and got my refund from the state in less than 3 weeks. I am STILL waiting for my federal return, and neither irs.gov or the toll free number can tell me when I can expect my refund.

    Meanwhile, $2400 was dumped into my savings account about a week ago. Yesterday, I got my unemployment debit card in the mail. In about a week, I'll be getting $240 a week from the state (which could last up to a year), but I also apparently will be getting another $600 a week (federal money ) until the end of July.

    What's put the Republicans in a quandry is that they know they have to spend SOME money to fix the problem, but their base will turn against them if they spend too much money.

    Thanks Arizona; I'll try it again Monday and fill in an fake number; it does not accept if you fill in "0.00"

    We're still waiting for our federal return too, one reason for our delay was the reconciliation form (form 8962) for Obamacare, and after I paid an accountant to do the form for us and fax it to the IRS on March 22, we were wondering what was going on, come to find out, on our local news, the IRS just recently called back furloughed workers to help catch up on the backlog of returns that needed to be processed. I've never had this long of a wait for our federal refund, never.

    Dock:

    Why in the world would any moron furlough IRS workers during tax season?

    Last January, the IRS recalled 46,000 workers who were furloughed because of he government shutdown (which was caused by Trump). They had been on furlough since December 22.

    Unfortunately, half of them did not show up:

    This year, of course, almost all the employees are working remotely. So, if you mailed in your tax return (as I did) you'll likely have a long wait before you see your money.

    Yeah, the situation sucks. My wife knows another lady who filed in February and she hasn't gotten her refund either, she filed electronically too. Trump really broke a smooth running system.

    I wonder if people running this payout package know how far $1200 would go for someone having to pay bills if the people needing it were laid off in March? $1200 would last a single person about one month, if that.

    So how far did that $1200 go? we need another shot in the arm now, we're anemic.

    Just also on the news today: at least three "billionaires" received "millions" of money under the "PPP" program. Trump knew them.

    The picture is getting worse and worse related to what Trump is doing and hiding.

    It also showed how certain people got huge payouts; like the wife of McConnell she is very rich, but got an huge payout.

    I wonder how much more dirt will come out over time.

    $1200 given to each citizen in April, how far did it go? for some, one month. For us, I paid off 2 subprime shark loans that we used to fix our junky cars, now all we have is spouse's medical bill, around $2200. Other than rent and electric/gas, we're doing much better than most. But it worries and bother me when I hear of people being kicked out of their homes/apartments, and waiting in line for hours for food handouts. This is wrong on so many levels. Whats worse is congress went home until September, how could they knowing people are struggling, they're all out of touch!

    Hey congress, don't just do something, stand there and watch America self destruct! idiots!

    Dock you should have called me, I would have fixed your cars for less. Ha ha. Forget congress they are now on "vacation"

    As I've said so many times, the "structure" and just about everything in this government is "broken"; except may be on the lower levels of government where they still do their work. However Trump replaced all the important functions with incompetent loyalists without any experience for the job, so "result" known. I bet that the next "help package" won't materialize, unless Trump can score with it or line his own pockets. All of this you can thank the GOP voters for it, who refused to check the background of this idiot and still maintain and stick with their stupidity even if they drop dead because of the virus..
