Not only is the centerpiece of President Bush’s “stimulus” plan going to put our government (and hence you and I) billions of dollars further into debt, it will cost us another 42 million just to tell us so.
WASHINGTON – At a cost of nearly $42 million, the IRS wants you to know: Your check is almost in the mail.
The Internal Revenue Service is spending the money on letters to alert taxpayers to expect rebate checks as part of the economic stimulus plan.
The notices are going out this month to an estimated 130 million households who filed returns for the 2006 tax year, at a cost $41.8 million, IRS spokesman John Lipold confirmed.
