    Since the CDC is warning of a virus surge, this has President Biden asking the states to restore the mask mandates. I think it's smart, and I don't understand why states were doing this in the first place. It's not that big of a deal to wear one, people. Protect yourself and others. I'm just glad that we have a president who really cares about this issue. It really shouldn't be up to the states to decide. This is a national issue. The faster we fall in line and cooperate, the faster we can get back to the normal days. Why are states doing this?

    Yeah but that gets into the whole debate over state's rights and whatnot. Don't see the federal government ever getting the states to fall in line with something like this.

    My grandparents died in 2019. My dad received my grandfather's check. He was told by the IRS that he had to return the check. They IRS has an instruction guide on their site that explains how to do it.

    That's unfortunate to hear. I haven't kept up with the market much, but I was just assuming that it was still a buyers market. I wonder what is causing the prices to go up?

    Much quicker and more streamlined now. They will get theirs the exact same way they got the last checks, just faster. If the IRS has their direct deposit info, they will get theirs just like you got yours, now or very soon.

    If not by mail in the next few weeks as longs as the IRS has their current address. It's not done by region, but mailing the checks was done by income brackets before and I think that's how they are still doing it.

    If they never got any checks and have to file on their taxes, then they will have to do the same with this one as well, that's the worst case scenario.

    Yeah I think they are way more streamline now. The first round of checks was so abysmal, that they are going through extra lengths not to repeat such a thing. Plus, they've had plenty of practice by now. Your folks should be seeing their checks very soon, I think.

    I have a lot of first responders in my family. My brother asked me the other day if congress is going to do anything as far tax breaks go for first responders. I went looking, and all I could find was similar stuff going on in individual states, but nothing on the federal level. Has anyone heard anything about bills in congress that would provide tax relief for first responders? I know many of them struggle with having to come out of pocket for overpriced insurance, and things of that nature. Would really be great if our government helped out the people who help us so much on a daily basis.

    Did we hear anymore on this? Did it this part of the bill make it through?

    Yeah, I've seen the same thing, and am currently experiencing the same thing. I too hope it doesn't sit there pending for days like everyone is talking about. Definitely could use the money.
