Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Have filed your 2007 taxes (the ones that were due April 15th of this year)
Be at least 17 years of age.
Have an income of at least $3000.
Not be claimed as a dependent on anyone's tax return.
Have an income of less than $150,000, $300,000 if married, filing jointly (anything above $75,000, $150,000 if married and filing jointly will result in a reduced check).
For most people on these forums, your check will be $600 ($1200 if married, filing jointly). You get an additional $300 for each dependent child under the age of 17 which you claim. This means that if your parents are claiming you as a dependent and you are over 17, they will not get the extra $300. They can file an amended return and not claim you if their savings for claiming you was less than $600 (you can get your own check for $600, and, if you're feeling generous, pay them the difference in their taxes out of it).
Any questions you folks have can be asked in this thread.
