But it’ll still be a couple of months before taxpayers actually get the money.
The Internal Revenue Service has created a schedule for payout, based on the last two digits of a taxpayer’s social security number.
People who request the stimulus money as a direct deposit into a checking account will receive it starting May 2nd, beginning with social security numbers that end in numbers ranging from zero-zero to twenty. Paper checks go in the mail starting May 16th.
You can find the full schedule on the IRS website. There is a calculator at irs.gov to help you figure out how much money you’ll get back.
All taxpayers must file their 2007 returns to receive the stimulus check. Even people who might not normally file, need to do so – like those who receive social security benefits, railroad retirement or veterans benefits.
You can find more information at irs.gov. Look for the stimulus payment icon on the home page. then click on ":rebate questions": to find out the check payment schedule and the online calculator.
