When will you receive your tax rebate?

OK, now don't get excited about this, since I was unable to confirm it online.  I received this in email, and am just waiting to see if it's right.  I checked Snopes and the IRS website, and googled extensively in vain.  Everything I heard before seemed to say the rebates would be sent out from May through July, not July through September.  Having said that, I'll share the information with you anyway.  Just because.

If you're waiting for your income tax refund (I know, I know... smart people don't try to get a refund; but there are a lot of stupid people like me who love to get money back) you can find out if it's been received, whether it's being processed, or if it's on its way to you by going HERE.

We got our refund last week and are in the process of spending it in as many places as possible.  LOL

The schedule you've listed was for the 2001 tax refund advances aka rebates. The 2008 tax rebates are being mailed starting in early May. As far as I know there is no publically-published schedule based on SSN's for it but from what I've read they should all be mailed by July.

See: http://www.irs.gov/irs/article/0,,id=177937,00.html for the (only) official word.

The schedule just came out for the rebates and it will be based on SSN, but the dates listed are not correct.

I found this information at http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080317/COL07/80317039/&imw=Y

Here’s how the checks will roll out:

If you file your return on time and request that your federal income tax refund is directly deposited, the stimulus payments will directly go into your bank account by May 2 if the last two digits of your Social Security number are 00-20.

If the last two digits are 21-75, the date to remember is May 9.

If the last two digits are 76-99, you’d get that money by May 16.

But if you do not use direct deposit to get your federal income tax refund – or you are paying taxes owed when you file that 2007 return – you’re going to get your tax rebate check later. The rollout times are more complicated, too.

If your last two digits of your Social Security number are 00-09, you could expect that rebate check to be mailed by May 16.

It’s by May 23 if the last two digits are 10-18.

It’s May 30 if the digits are 19-25.

It’s June 6 if the digits are 26-38.

It’s June 13 if the digits are 39-51.

It’s June 20 if the digits are 52-63.

It’s June 27 if the digits are 64-75.

It’s July 4 if the digits are 76-87.

It’s by July 11 if the digits are 88 -99 and the person did not use direct deposit of a refund this year – or if you wrote a check to cover money owed for the 2007 tax year.
