The IRS is now sending out letters letting the American taxpayers know that they will be receiving their stimulus checks within the next two months. This letter is not entirely accurate. Just this morning I spoke with a woman who was in debt to the IRS, but had received a notice saying she would be getting her stimulus check. Remember, just because you got a letter that says you are getting a stimulus check, does not necessarily mean you are getting one. If you know you owe money to the IRS, don't expect a check. Also, if you aren't sure whether you owe money or not, you can always check your stimulus status in an online calculator at www.irs.gov. If you are receiving a check, chances are good that you are up to date with your filings, and that you are not in debt. It's always good to know for sure.
