Rebate Check News

Didn't Get Your Rebate Check Deposit Yet? You May Be Waiting Until July

The IRS has run into a few snafus in sending out rebate checks on a supposedly earlier than planned schedule, and the most recent glitch may have some people who were counting on that check feeling rather frustrated. According to South Florida's Sun-Sentinel and Miami's CBS4, if you didn't see your payment deposited into your bank account by May 16, you may have to wait until as late as July 11 to receive your check and it will come in the form of a paper check. That is, if your rebate wasn't mistakenly deposited into someone else's bank account. If you have questions regarding your rebate check, the IRS's rebate hotline is 866-234-2942.

I really need my check to go towards a car downpayment. I got the notice in the mail saying I should receive it within two weeks. Hopefully that's accurate and it won't be July!!

Gee, you call the hotline and "Due to technical difficulties" they can't answer your call at this time. Please try back. Typical government!!

I was supposed to get mine on May 2 direct deposit. After not receiving that or my refund a couple of weeks later, I figured out that I had messed up my direct deposit info by one digit - OOPS. Luckily the number I put down wasn't a real account number, so the money bounced back to the IRS instead of going into someone else's account. Apparently they send you a paper check when that happens. I guess they'll do the same with the rebate/stimulus check.

Glad that I wasn't depending on any money, seems like people who were are in a definite crunch

I'm another one who was put into the paper check queue thanks to TurboTax, so the nice plans I had for the boyfriend's birthday last week were kiboshed. That's what I get on depending on the government for anything. Now the money's going toward debt-busting, which is smarter than spending the cash on a nice meal in the first place. So...yay?

I'm glad I wasn't counting on this check, either. I haven't received it so I might have to wait, too.

This is all so silly. I'm glad I wasn't counting on this for anything more than extra savings - we had thought about using these checks toward summer vacation, but it looks like mine won't be here until well after that trip has come and gone.

Well, I guess i'm one of those who has to wait :( I was scheduled for May 2nd. I was really counting on that check to rid myself of a few debts. I guess by the time I get it I've paid off the debt and just deposit the check into my savings.

Oh the drama. I was originally peeved with the whole Turbo Tax payment causing me to have to get an actual paper check but now with all these issues I'm actually glad I am!
