Does this mean if you got a refund; meaning you didn't pay at tax time that you won't get the rebate?ICK!! Nononononononono!Getting a refund doesn't mean you didn't pay taxes; it means you overpaid your taxes.If you have $8500 withheld, but only owe $7900, you get a $600 refund. You've still paid $7900 in taxes.This misconception that refund=didn't pay is one of the reasons it's difficult to gain support for a tax cut. On the other hand, if withholding ended tomorrow, and everyone had to send the IRS a $200 check every month, tax cuts would suddenly be a >very< important issue next election...
