Still Waiting To Stimulate The Economy

Where's my stimulus money? I used direct deposit to pay my taxes and according to the payment schedule, I should have received my money May 9th. I feel so un-loved by the government. I even got one of those letters that told me to expect something. I check my bank account every day but still nothing. I even checked the IRS website to track my payment but it said "no info available". I also noticed that although the site says my payment will arrive "no later than" May 9th, it also says "Please allow 2 weeks from the date shown on the schedule to receive your payment." Well which one is it? No later than or 2 weeks from the date? If it doesn't arrive this Friday I will really begin to worry. How am I going to pay for the giant big screen TV that I just financed? Just trying to do my part. :)

I was expecting mine to be direct deposited by May 9th as well and have not received it. I even filled out a form on Turbo Tax that stated I would prefer to have my rebate deposited in to the same account that I used to pay with. Then I found out that it will not be direct deposited because I owed taxes and I will receive my check by mail. I found the answer at Turbo Tax's support page.

Thanks Daniel! That is exactly the info I was looking for. I too owed money. Now I can relax and wait until THE END OF JUNE!!! Bummer, I wanted the money NOW but later is better than never!
