IRS rebate letters cost nearly $42 million

with one comment

So I checked my mailbox today, and there was a letter from the IRS with big red letters reading “Enclosed is an important message from the IRS on the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008. Do not throw away!” Could this be my much heralded tax rebate from the IRS? Is this the very rebate that I will use to stimulate the economy out of recession, presumably by going from neighborhood to neighborhood and paying off defaulted home loans like a fiscal Johnny Appleseed?

No. The IRS had sent me something in the mail telling me to look for something from the IRS in the mail around May. Give or take. How much did it cost to send out these letters out to future rebate recipients? $42 million. I feel economically stimulated already.

  1. we could just give everyone in the US another 13 cents.

    or just the people they sent the notices to another 32 cents.

    either way…
