When to Expect Your Economic Stimulus Rebate Check 2008-03-19 14:28:05

When to Expect Your Rebate Check


The IRS has put together a schedule for when you'll be receiving your economic stimulus rebate check. The schedule is based on the last two digits of your Social Security number, so if you're filing jointly use the primary filer’s Social Security number to figure out where you fit on the schedule. It's possible that the IRS won't exactly meet the projected dates since 130 million households are eligible to receive the rebate check, but at least you can start planning ahead for that hefty credit card payment, savings deposit, vacation fund deposit, or shopping trip.

If you file your tax return and provide direct deposit banking information for the IRS to transfer your return, you'll be receiving your rebate check slightly earlier than those who receive their return in the mail. If you're unsure about your eligibility to receive any economic stimulus money, the IRS just introduced a calculator that lets you figure out if you'll be getting a check and the amount, if any. To see a handy chart that tells you when you're scheduled to receive your rebate check just read more.
