    There aren't many of these out there. For only $10, I'll sign this check over to YOU!
    You can frame it and hang it on your wall to show all your friends just how idiotic the US Treasury is. I'm willing to bet it cost the tax payers more than $1 to print and send me this check.


    YOURS for only $10!!!!

    The real question is... HOW much time did you spend on doing your taxes and all you could manage was a lousy ONE DOLLAR refund??? :rofl1: :D

    Good point,
    If you are getting money back, it's because you paid too much. I got money back and all I thought of was I could have used that money throughout the year. I went and adjusted my dependencies and gave myself a monthly raise, hopefully not too much I don't want to be owing the IRS any bucks.

    I believe a great man said.. It's better than a kick in the face with a golf shoe. Buy yourself something nice.:thumbup:

    You should have donated 99¢ to the Presidential Election Campaign Fund to see if they sent you a check for 1¢.

    Well... YES... it does seem like a joke.

    Besides, knowing our government... I am sure there are lots of check out there for $1 or maybe even less. Our gov't will spend $10 to process a $1 check and you wonder why we are in the debt that we are.

    ...hmmm
