UPDATE – May 9 – My last 2 digits are 37,  and I just got the direct deposit today, May 9.

Everyone has been asking “when will I get my stimulus check?” Below is a table that the IRS put out recently, telling us when we can receive the Direct Deposit or check. The Tax Stimulus Dates are now announced.

    Stimulus payments starting early

      Treasury Department says it will deposit the first 800,000 payments four days earlier than expected in effort to boost economy. I cannot find a change to the schedule published on the IRS site though.

    Below are the schedules for the stimulus payments related to tax returns processed by April 15, 2008.
    If you want the whole stimulus explained in simple terms, read my post here called, “Tax Rebate Stimulus Details Explained“.

    Read the Bible for some real peace.

    The question is, what are you going to do with this money? The Government is betting that you will just go out and spend it. Will you? To stimulate the economy, this money needs to be spent right away on goods and services.

    I do realize that some who get the money, will have to use it to pay for food and shelter. I don’t want to seem uncaring in that regard. Food and shelter have to come first in any family budget. ( Thanks to a couple of comment’s below, to remind me of this.) I have ate my share of beans and cornbread. Actually , I grew to like it as it was a routine food down on the farm.

    I will be putting this money toward a loan I took out to help pay for one of my son’s college tuition. That is not going to help the Government achieve their goals. Sorry Uncle Sam. 😉 You can use this money to start that Roth IRA. See my post on 16 Roth IRA Facts and see all the reasons why you have to get that going.
