If you want to know how much you are getting you can check out the Economic Stimulus Payment Calculator put out by the IRS.
Welcome to the Economic Stimulus Payment Calculator
Hereís 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, youíd get that money by May 16.
But if you do not use direct deposit to get your federal income tax refund Ė or you are paying taxes owed when you file that 2007 return Ė youíre 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.
Itís by May 23 if the last two digits are 10-18.
Itís May 30 if the digits are 19-25.
Itís June 6 if the digits are 26-38.
Itís June 13 if the digits are 39-51.
Itís June 20 if the digits are 52-63.
Itís June 27 if the digits are 64-75.
Itís July 4 if the digits are 76-87.
Itís by July 11 if the digits are 88 -99 and the person did not use direct deposit of a refund this year Ė or if you wrote a check to cover money owed for the 2007 tax year.
