    If you haven't done your income taxes you won't get them until they are in.

    depending on your income, you may not get one. if you have direct deposit you would have got it, and the cheques were mailed on the 10th...

    GST is federal gov't.

    HST rebate is via Ont Gov't

    i haven't gotten a GST cheque in years, i think the HST is stupid and $300 is not even close to what its going to cost the average person.

    Child tax credit aka Baby Bonus.

    well... a few.

    Universal Child Care Benefit (I think this is the $100/mth supposed to be put toward childcare) which is a taxable income.
    Child Tax Benefit which is calculated by your income tax.
    Then some other amount that I'm still unclear about what is it or why I get it. They send the form, I send it back, then a chq arrives. I think it's part of the Child Care Benefit, but I'm not sure.

    sk8 knows this stuff. she's way smarter than me.

    As for GST, Im not sure, I was just teasing. I don't know if having a kid will make money bags eligible or not, but it sorta makes sense.

    there must be some way you can borrow someone's kid for a day in order to qualify for the extra rebate. if you sponsor a starving ethanopian kid, for example, would that be adequate? ;)

    On a related note, cab prices went up to do the HST merger.

    There are huge numbers of drunk and staggering hobos in the downtown core - more than usual. Ambulances being called, hobos wandering around with half full bottles of booze... Then it occurred to me.... HST cheques in action!!!!

    Hobos get them too, right?
