My paycheck just went up $30.76!
Really, I can’t tell you what I’m going to do…
Actually… Yes I can.
I’m going to spend it.
And, you know, stimulate the economy.
At first I thought it was some sneaky minuscule percentage type raise to coincide with my recent 12-year anniversary at work.
That would be highly unlikely though. In the past, raises have been few and far between. Generous, but certainly not on any sort of schedule.
Then I remembered Obama mentioning something about lowering taxes for pretty much everyone. Wasn’t that a campaign promise? I think so.
Anyway, I just didn’t think it was supposed to start until April at the earliest (or at all, frankly) but it showed up on my paycheck this past Thursday.
They’re taking $30 less from the Federal Income Tax line.
I can see it, right there, in black and white. How about that?
That’ll work out to almost $800 per year!!!
Now I just have to decide how to spend it… and, well, stimulate the economy!
