"Why don't you start right now?"

The federal government sent me a letter today saying that I "do not need to do anything."

This is in reference to the $600 or so they said they'd send me, which I have not received. I have received two letters telling me, essentially, that I do not need to do anything about this.

The second one, to its credit and expense, says it is printed on recycled paper. The envelope, too.

Unfortunately it also says I could have expected my payment 5 days ago, but to wait 6 weeks before contacting them about that.

The way I'll know is when you send the check.

I'd like to meet the guy who actually types this stuff and see what the approval process is on the language.

All work and no play makes Jack try to kill you.

A tad late now, but if you has chosen direct deposit you would have your money about two weeks after applying.

I have direct deposit. The IRS had a ridiculous problem with one of my capital gains statements and it has delayed my refund and, presumably, my stimulus payment.

Maybe you're not getting your check because you keep pestering the White House about the travel habits of the executive branch?
