Men: Not getting as much stimulus as you think you should? We have the answer!!
And it's not a blue pill or some iffy dose of something you might see in a creepy commercial starring Santa and the gals in the office. (Creepiest commercial of all time? Possibly!)
No, this stimulus comes from the federal government, so you know it's guaranteed.
The IRS is sending out word that there are almost 31,000 Texans who have not received the checks they were due from that Bush economic-stimulus plan earlier this year. (You know, the one that stimulated the economy so much.)
More than $19 million is waiting to be claimed, the IRS says. That's in addition to the $8 million in regular refund checks that 9,000 Texans are due.
The IRS says if you think you are due a check but haven't gotten it, head to the "Where's My Refund" tool on IRS.gov or call 1-800-829-1954.
Don't be wearing a Santa suit when you do it.
