    Those of you eagerly awaiting your tax rebate checks will rejoice at the Treasury Department's announcement that they're depositing the checks ahead of schedule. Their original announcement stated that May 2 would be rebate check opening day, but they've updated their schedule with the early start date of Monday, April 28.

    If the IRS has your direct deposit information then your check will be deposited earlier than those who will receive their check in the mail. However, the mailed checks will also be sent a week ahead of schedule and mailings will begin on May 9. All rebates will be distributed according to the last two digits of your social security number as originally stated. While the IRS hasn't come out with a new schedule, I've updated their old one to reflect the newly announced dates. To see an updated estimated schedule just read more

    I read that today. I think however that they will be disapointed that I plan on saving mine and not spending it.

    Spend? Save? By the time I fill up my tank with $4 gas, so I can go to the store and buy $5 milk and drop my $200+ electric bill in the mail, there's not gonna be any money left to 'stimulate' shit.

    Well GWB did this a few years back as well when he was "giving us" free money. Forgot from what exactly, but it was during a time when his popularity was down. And basically when people think they are getting free money, when it is actually their's already, they think its good. It's a psychological device used as a means to manipulate our evil thoughts to happy thoughts.

    So to get this you have to have actually filed taxes this year, right? Because last year I was making my cash from research stipends at college :p

    Attn: Anyone with student loans or if you owe the tax man ...

    I read underneath the schedule on the IRS site, that if you have tax debt or owe to student loans... you might not be getting anything more than a letter. And it will say how your stimulus was used for your own debt.

    Here's the exact wording...
    Hooray... my wife has a student loan!

    Awww damnit. I graduated college last spring so yeah, I got a student loan. I'll be pissed if I end up not getting anything. But that would follow with the trend of me getting screwed over lately.

    I think it only applies if you're delinquent on the loan (unpay), not if you've been making payments/payments aren't due yet. I also assume it's only for FAFSA originating loans, not sallie mae style.

    Also, don't forget if you cleared more than $75k, you get nothing.

    Exactly. If you're properly deferring and/or otherwise handling your student loans, you will get the package. If you're delinquent on paying any back debts/loans and the government has tabs on this, your money will automatically be put into that (or, if nothing else, somebody will let you know that that's where your money went.)
