The stimulus checks were unique and there is always a big push to get them in peoples hands immediately. 

Seems the push was not hard enough then :wink:

You lucky bastards. All Uncle Sam sends me are tax bills, not stimulus checks.

Anyone else getting this?  A deposit for $2,800.00 will be available to your EveryDay Checking 3/17/2021 from PPD IRS TREAS 310 TAXEIP3.  

I am not sure what the future economic impact will be from the stimulus money.  Just glad it went to me, and others like me, to spend.  Better than having politicians explain through their press relea

It would be very rare to have diplomatic materials sent by a hand carry courier.  Those would have to be especially sensitive.

The vast majority of U.S. diplomatic mail sent back and forth between the the U.S. and foreign embassies is sent in giant secure bags with the express carriers.  Prior to 1980s, those were sent by US mail connecting to foreign mail systems.  These bags contain all kinds of embassy work, like passports, visa paperwork, blank forms, anything the embassy needs.  Even Christmas presents!  They are not subject to custom inspections, duties and taxes.  Currently, RAO Subic gets retired military mail included in those pouches, and that is how they offer U.S. mail services at RAO Subic.

Back in the day, DHL would pick these up in Washington DC twice a week, thousands of pounds, going all over the world.  I'm not sure who has the contract now, but DHL invented the service and sold it to USG in the late 70's or early 80's.

Can you check?

Ours was dated 6 January 2021, it also says that it is valid for 1 year.

So I guess we report it on next years taxes:89:

Not taxable. Just think of it as an extra refund.

Printing money from thin air is causing inflation, reducing purchasing power and making all of us poorer. I took my $1400 check and invested all of it in bitcoin, as of today my stimulus check grew to almost $1600. 

I have a massive stack of silver I bought at $14.75 per ounce. It's still there when the lights go out.

That is good news!  Mine was supposed to be mailed on the 6th, so after it takes a few more rounds of Manila, it should arrive here in the next month!

If you already did your 2020 taxes and took the credit for it, you will need to pay it back next year, I believe.
