Comments and when will the check be in the mail?

If you don't see your comment show up right away don't worry. I removed the stupid verification code because it's become so difficult to decipher. That means, though, that I have to approve the comments so that I am not totally spammed. It may take a while since I spend so much of my time at the doctors' offices. :P

A lot of us are wondering: when are we getting our IRS stimulus checks? I had no idea and kept checking my bank account. Then my good friend Nancy in Pittsburgh sent me a link that explains when I could expect my check. It won't come too soon: May 16th.

People who use direct deposit also will be among the first to receive the payments starting April 28. Direct deposits will be made daily and completed by the date listed below:

Last two SSN digits: Payments will be transmitted no later than:
00 through 20 May 2
21 through 75 May 9
76 through 99 May 16

Paper checks will also go out based on Social Security number. For Social Security numbers ending in 00 through 09, the paper checks will be mailed starting May 9 and will continue through May 16. A similar process will be repeated in the following weeks.

Last two SSN digits: Payments will be mailed no later than:
00 through 09 May 16
10 through 18 May 23

19 through 25
May 30
26 through 38 June 6
39 through 51 June 13
52 through 63 June 20
64 through 75 June 27
76 through 87 July 4
88 through 99 July 11

People who file a return after April 15 will receive their economic stimulus payment, but probably about two weeks later than the schedule shows. A return must be filed by October 15 in order to receive a stimulus payment this year. See the online calculator for an estimate of the amount you will receive.

A small percentage of tax returns will require additional time to process and to compute a stimulus payment amount. For these returns, stimulus payments may not be issued in accordance with the schedule above, even if the tax return was processed by April 15.
