This news almost made me fall out of my seat: The IRS says it is ahead of schedule and will begin sending out the Stimulus Rebates beginning Monday April 28th. When is a Government agency ever ahead of schedule? The IRS says it will begin Direct Deposits of Rebate Checks Monday, and hopes to have the money in the bank accounts of the first 8 million taxpayers by Friday May 2nd. The IRS says it will start direct deposits this Monday, April 28th for people whose Social Security Number ends in 00 through 20. SS ends with 21-75? You'll get your deposit starting Friday May 2nd. SS ending in 76-99: You'll receive yours starting Friday May 9th. However, if you receive your annual tax refund by mail, you'll have to wait: Your rebate check will be mailed between May15th and July 11th.
