Most Americans are to receive a $600 stimulus refund next month. It's too early for me to call my accountant, so I thought I'd try to get clarification here.... Are we going to be penalized for that refund on next year's taxes? In other words, are we getting this refund with no strings attached or is it merely an advance on next year's taxes where one might go from owing the Government $100 to $700? Please, stick to the subject matter in your response without going into any political discussion. Thanks.
