so you've probably heard about the stimulus package, intended to be a shot in the arm for our flagging economy. hooray, we're all getting some of our money back! yay!
i would just like to point out that if my wife and i were able to file "married" tax returns - you know, like a REAL married couple - we would be eligible for the full $1200. since the government would like to pretend we're roommates, however, one of us is over the limit for full eligibility.
i'm not sure whether the gay tax in this case is going to be a full $600, or some fraction thereof. either way, it sucks.
