KT does like to use the third person, doesn’t he?

Well, it’s not our tax money being paid back, because the stimulus funds are magically “created.”

Of course, but since our money as only backed by the government, not hard assets like gold or silver, our money has been magically created for decades. One thing about it, KT is giving it a good spending!

Good man! Cannot believe the government is recommending to spend like a Drunken sailor, but KT will follow their recommendation! Hopefully this will help keep the businesses KT frequents a float! Support your small local businessmen!

i'm not entitled to a single cent! i'm in the minority, it's called "essential service" and working through an entire pandemic means no special privileges, no tax breaks, no nothing!

Owing to inflation, it actually constitutes another tax with higher prices for purchases and cheapened fiat currency.

i guess, but i won't see any of it. they're calling it the CERB, Canadian Emergency Response Benefit and that was started pretty early on in the pandemic. in some cases it replaced the Employment Insurance Benefits. the federal gov dished out a LOT of funds to individuals and small business to try to help keep things afloat!
all i know for sure is that i don't qualify for anything because i've worked throughout the whole she-bang including the lockdown (when we had it here) and i've have been busier than ever! i've already filed my income tax for 2020 and didn't get any kind of tax breaks what-so-ever. i guess that's the kind of thanks essential services get.

They go back to 2019... I didn't get the first one because my Ex-CPA did not file my 2019 taxes until Feb of this year... won't go into details but he has a pretty rotten year... No excuse to me though... I did get my stimulus 2 days ago that I will save for a rainy day.

The fourth check should be coming about July. The last thing you want to do is put it in savings where it loses value every day. At least, pay off debt.

Some of us don't have dept to pay off but with the coming inflation you're right about losing value.

For the stimulus to work as intended, it needs to be spent. If you pay debt, which would seem like the right thing to do, then it does nothing to stimulate the economy which is the purpose. If you buy things, then that money helps stimulate other businesses as well as yourself.

Some Senators have made the suggestion or even presented a bill that would continue the $2,000 a month until the pandemic is over. Nothing has been passed, and I doubt this would pass as well.
