Stimulus Check

Last year when everyone received $300 for each person in their household, we were shorted by one kid. Our Stimulus Statement said we were getting $ for 4 kids. I tried to figure out if there was a way to remedy this, but was unable to get an answers. So I was just happy with what we got.

Tax season for us gets a little trickier each year. Jason has his own business, I have Mary Kay and this past year added Greta's Beads. I love numbers and probably would have been an accountant if I had finished school, but in my 'mommy world' I don't keep up with all the new laws. Therefore, we have an accountant do our taxes (for 3 years now). When I mentioned to him the Stimulus Check shortage he said he would check on it. To make a long story short, I was on the phone with the IRS for almost an hour yesterday. When I got done I was trying to explain to Daegan how the government gave us $300 for each kid to help us out and try to get us to spend money, etc. His eyes got as big as saucers and he said, very excitedly, "I'm getting $300!!!"

I hated to break his little heart, but, "No"

.....the IRS said they'd fix the problem, but I won't hold my breath!
