Nope; I don't realize what is not true.  There's nothing in the law that
says that the amount of the stimulus will be deducted from next year's

Enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling now...tax CPAs *know* what is coming
next year.

"This advanced rebate amount of the credit is computed in the same way
as the credit, except that it is done on the basis of tax returns
filed for 2007 (instead of 2008). ( Code Sec. 6428(g) ) "

"Taxpayers reconcile the amount of the credit with the advance rebate
payment they receive by completing a worksheet calculating the amount
of the credit based on their 2008 tax return. They then subtract from
the credit the amount of the rebate payment they received. For many
taxpayers, these two amounts will be the same. If, however, the result
is a positive number (because, for example, the taxpayer paid no tax
in 2007 but is paying tax in 2008), the taxpayer can claim that amount
as a credit against 2008 tax liability. (Code Sec. 6428(f))"

Of course, next year's tax tables will also be adjusted to reflect
this rebate, while everyone is busy celebrating their big windfal

According to the FAQ at the IRS web site, you are correct. The first
item in the economic stimulus FAQ says the check will not change the
amount of money owed or rebated on 2008 taxes at all.

You do realize that this time, this "stimulus" check is, in effect,
just an advance on any potential next year's tax refund.  It's not
like the guvment is gonna just turn on the printing press without it
costing you sumthing.  This is the fundamental difference between
Democrats and Republicans: Democrats tax you to death and Republicans
borrow you to death.
