AAAAAUUUUUURRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!! I HATE THESE STOOPID TAX FORMS!!!!! There, I feel better now.
Last year, the IRS revised my 1040 by adding in the Making Work Pay Credit, because it was not claimed on my form, and they said I could claim that. Yea for me, got $400 extra bucks. They said in the letter if I wanted to claim that in future years, I had to fill out Schedule M. Got Schedule M and on line 10 it says "Did you receive an economic recovery payment in 2010?". Uhm, was the $400 they gave me an "economic recovery payment" that I got in my 2009 Tax Refund? I had no clue what this Making Work Pay Credit deal is all about, but if it gets me $400, I'll take it. But how do I answer Question 10 on Schedule M? I did not get any kind of payments other than my 2009 Tax Refund and that extra $400 last year.
