When Do You Get Your Tax Rebate Check?

Very soon, you'll be getting a check from the government as part of an "economic stimulus" plan. The majority of Americans will receive between $300 and $600 + $300 more per dependent child. But when do you get this money?

Before we get to that, there is one catch. You have to have filed your 2007 tax return on time. Since today is April 17th, if you haven't filed your taxes by now, you won't get a check. But for the rest of you, here's the breakdown. It's based on whether or not you had your 2007 tax refund direct deposited into your bank, or if you had to receive a paper check. The date you get your money is also dependent on the last 2 digits of your social security number. Take a look at the charts below and find out when your money is due:
