Thumbs down Another Economic Stimulus question

I just called the IRS and since so many people are calling about the stimulus, I got the (recorded) answer that they couldn't help me... call again later or tomorrow
. THAAAANKS! That helps a lot!

We (FINALLY) got our stimulus in the mail yesterday. But it's not for the full ($1800) amount?!?! It's something like $1525??

I PAID all of the taxes we owed for 2007 (and they deposited the checks well before this was mailed to me).

Where's my $275? Why didn't I get the full amount??

I was actually short one child and that's because of the way the form is filled on the first page of my return...I don't have it in front of me, but your kids are listed in this box and then there is an "eligibility" question and if BOTH children aren't "X"d than you only will get for the one child...I was on the phone FOR ONE HOUR to not even find that out from the (*$&% but spoke to the guy who filed our taxes...he has assured me that we will get it next year...a lot of good it will do me then
I figure if we don't get it then he won't get paid...Not sure why the d*mn box wasn't X'd.

If you have a copy, double check it and see if the boxes are checked for both children...

We only got something like $980 or so...
Not sure why since we paid in full and have 2 kids. We were on the edge of the higher income though, so that may have boned us....
