My buddy, Nickel, from Five Cent Nickel has written a couple of articles about The Tax Stimulus Plan that you’ll want to read.Â The first is about the tax rebate payment schedule and the second is about the official tax rebate calculator.Â After reading the articles, it looks like our check, for $1800, should arrive in May.Â This will work out great for our family, because my wife will miss a paycheck – due to the fact that she’ll be having baby #3.
Some of the rebate check money will go towards offsetting the cost of the delivery.Â It looks like the total cost will be about $11,000, 90% of which will be covered by our health insurance plan.Â We’ll have to pay our portion, up front, the day of the delivery.
For those of you who are new to No Credit Needed –
Let me welcome you to the site and invite you to checkout some of the other ‘NCN’ sites –
I have a weight loss blog, No. Calories Needed.Â I’ve started following a new eating plan – Paul McKenna’s 4 Golden Rules – and I’ve lost 7 pounds.Â I’m really excited about this plan.Â I hope you’ll click over to read more.
I also have a podcast, the No Credit Needed Podcast.Â I talk about debt, debt reduction, my life, saving money, and frugal living.
Finally, I manage the No Credit Needed Network.Â The Network allows members to create and share a personal finance goal / chart.Â You really have to see it to really appreciate it.Â Two years ago, there were fewer than 10 members.Â Now, there are more than 350.
