Sweet

Rebates will be mailed

But in case you didn’t know that, the IRS is spending $42 million to tell you

Mon, Mar 10, 2008 (2:07 a.m.)

By now, most Americans know that a majority of U.S. taxpayers are going to receive a federal rebate check of $600 to $1,200 in May, depending on marital status and 2007 annual income.

For that matter, most American taxpayers have planned how they are going to spend or save their rebates, which start going out in May as part of a $168 billion economic stimulus plan.

Still, the Internal Revenue Service is spending $42 million to send letters to tens of millions of Americans just to make sure they know the checks are coming.
[...]
Forty-two million dollars just to let people know they are getting a check in the mail.

So, they're going to give people a bit of their own money back, and also spend $42 million of their money to tell them they're getting their own money back.

But then, why not give the postal service a bit of economic stimulus too? A good way to transfer a shitload of money from one bureaucracy to another.

Your tax dollars at work!
