Ok, so you need to have a $600+ tax liability to get the $600 check? But if you over paid with either withholding or estimated tax payments, you won't have a liability. You might have a refund coming.

I haven't yet read AJ's response, which I'm sure addresses this, but I cannot hold myself back from a ARGHHH! Stop that this instant! Whose money is it they're giving back to you? Are they giving all of it back to you? If not, you have a tax liability.

People who say, "I didn't have to pay taxes last year, I got a refund" aren't paying close enough attention to their money.
