File your taxes – it is the only way. It will be sent to you afterwards.

If you earned less than \$3,000 – unfortunately you’d get nothing.
If you earned more than \$3,000 but paid no taxes, you’d get \$300.
If you earned more than \$3,000 and paid taxes, you get \$600.
If you have children, add \$300 per.
Determine Phaseout Reduction:
The phaseout levels begin at \$75k and end at \$87k, at a reduction of 5% per \$1,000 over the lower limit. If you earn above \$87k, you’re over and thus get nothing regardless of the math.

It’s not \$300 from Bush; it’s \$300 added to the federal deficit.

it is a loan against next years’ rebate.

It is not coming from Bush any more than Hillary can give us health care. It is going to come out of next years refunds so it is an advance on money the government confiscates from you this year.
