Where the inside of my mind leaks onto the screen.

Thank You Mr. President

Regardless of your political views and position on the economic stimulus plan, I think everyone can find something positive about a little extra money in their paychecks. As the bookkeeper for my dad's business, I've been carefully checking over the paychecks, waiting to see a difference as a result of the plan. Well, it came. The tax tables were updated on 3/12, so I think that any paychecks after that date should have been affected.

I honestly haven't done a lot of research into this, but I had thought that there would be an extra $13 per paycheck. Either I misunderstood, or there was a change (if anybody knows the details, please post because I'm interested) because I was quite surprised to find our 3 salaried employees' paychecks were each $30 fatter. If that keeps up, that's $60 a month, and I know my budget would appreciate some $6o wiggle room.

Anyway, if you were excited to see your (or your hubby's) paycheck be a little bigger, or if you have the scoop on how this all works and for how long, let me know. I'm just intrigued by the whole thing.

Hmm...I'll have to keep my lids peeled to see if there's a little somethin' somethin' extra in Chris's check!
