GS--

If you'll read through again, you'll see that they are not getting a double benefit. Before their marriage in 2001, one spouse got a $300 prebate, the other did not. Now that they're filing their 2001 return, the final amount of their tax reduction is $600. Since $300 was already sent earlier, another $300 is claimed on the return.
