Suffering from success not corona
My dad makes just a tad over $100k a year. This year, however, he's been out of work since Feb 1st because of an ankle injury. He's been on disability since and is bringing home about 1/3 of what he usually does, maybe less. He still ain't getting a check, though, because it's based off 2018 taxes
@Nudity Industries, I feel for him, and dont want you to think I dont feel that he could be in need of support, but of you make that much, you definitely should have some sort of savings. At the very least for emergencies, and hopefully more than that for future plans.
@mazemarble, he did, but he also divorced my mom last year. Last spring he spent ~$1.5k to help me get my first car and then had to give my mom about $10k to settle ownership of the house, and has to give her about $400 a week for alimony. If this would have happened 2 years ago, we would be fine.
@mazemarble, that also depends on the cost of living though, in a lot of cities 100k will get you a decent apartment and a car but not much else
My cousin’s apartment in Chicago cost her $6500 a month and her parking space is $45,000 a year so it really depends on where you’re living
I don't get one because I'm a dependacy which blows, but I'm to old for my parents to get extra money for me being their child which double blows. Fvck Trump
@unknownjanitor, lol its trumps fault you can't move out you child, typical trump hater sounds like a mamas boy.
@Pang, I am in a same situation. Im in college and am supposed to not be living with my parents, but with Corona everyone in on and off campus housing got kicked out forcing us back home. Yet, I still can't get a check.
@RamenNinja, campus living costs lots, either your parents got cash and your families don't need our poor people free money, or you've taken on student loan debt which, well you made your own grave there bud.
@Pang, boi, I wanna move out of my parents house as soon as I can. I can't wait to get away from them. I'm currently still in college, so sorry my parents care enough about me to still support me. Furthermore there's nothing wrong with a personal loan to attend college for a better future (as long as your not going there for some prissy bullshît). I dislike Trump because he cares way more about big businesses then he does about the people Truely effected by this virus, not because I feel entitled to his money.
@Pang, trump sucks
@Pang, though, to be fair, I'm sorry if I have a hostile attitude. An initial look at the comment K made definitely sounded like the person you're portraying me as, but I got kicked off of school during my last semester, lost my job, and have to take care of my parents now. I'm sure there are plenty of people who deserve that money more then me, but they're getting it no sweat. Just because of that though doesn't mean I'm not in need of additional support like that.
@RamenNinja, if your parents don’t claim you asa dependent on their taxes you’re entitled to the check. You need to file your own tax return tho. If you’re a dependent for tax purposes you shouldn’t get a check because you’re not paying taxes.
@BigJohnson86, well stated, if you're claimed as a dependent your parents already get a bonus return in their yearly taxes. If you're below the age of 18 and claimed as a dependent your parents will recieve a $500 (correct me if I'm wrong) bonus for your taxes. If you're above the age of 18 and claimed as dependent by your parents you're parents already recieve a bonus for claiming you yearly until the age of (23?) After then you are to claim yourself. Dont be mad that you are not getting a check, everyone who gets a check has to pay it back with their 2020 tax return (if this ends before 2021)
Aren't they free?
@Codeine, pretty sure it’s only if you make below 100k
@Cpzombie, I'm too tired to keep going but I was going to make a joke about how we get free healthcare
@Cpzombie, $75,000 and $150,000 for couples
@lemongrenade, it's a graduated scale. Full amount for 75k and under single, 150k and under married couple. It then decreases linearly to 100k and 200k, respectively. Based on your 2019 taxes, or if you haven't submitted those then your 2018. I guess I shouldn't have been so quick to do my taxes this year...
