Apr. 15, and the days preceding, can seem like times of doom and gloom.

I read about a famous architect in San Francisco that was  well known for his unique church designs. He and his wife were figuring out their income taxes and he commented, “This country has been so good to us that we always enjoy doing our part for it.”

This comment was really startling for me. I had always thought of tax money as a penalty, something to pay and forget. Now, I will remember that this money will return to us in various ways and much will go to others, our brothers and sisters, in this America.

God bless our taxes, the work that they represent, the lawmakers who decide how to spend them, and even the tax men.

Not only are many taxpayers receiving tax refunds, but in a few weeks the government’s economic stimulus payments will begin arriving.

Beginning May 2, and continuing for the next several months, more than a $1,000,000 is expected to be paid out to residents in Calhoun County through direct deposits and paper checks.

According to the IRS, for those whose tax returns are processed by Apr. 15, and had tax refunds deposited directly to a bank account, payment is expected to made May 2, 9 or 16. Those receiving paper checks should receive payment between May 16 and July 11.

If your tax return is processed after Apr. 15, you can expect your stimulus payment about two weeks after receiving your tax refund.

For residents who do not usually have to file a return, it is not too late to qualify for a stimulus payment this year, but a return must be filed by Oct. 15. Visit for information.
