Just wondering if they are mailing them out in a timely manner. Mine should be mailed on August the 8th. Can you tell I already have the money spent? Insurance and school clothes should take care of most of it.

I just got the letter from the IRS yesterday that said that we should be receiving it soon.

Ours has been spent about 12 times over already - lol!

Yes, we got ours a couple of days ago (and it was in the first group to be mailed).

Yep! Mine was supposed to be mailed on July 25th; I received it that day. :-) For the moment it's just sitting in my account collecting interest.

We got the letter on the 1st, yesterday and we got the check today, the 2nd. Not sure what we are going to do with it yet though.

How does one know if they will be receiving one?

We received our letter (dated the 29th) on the 30th stating that our check would be mailed on 8/ i was hoping we'd get our check just as fast as we got that letter. But we're still waiting, mail came today & still no check, hoping it comes tomorrow!!

Ours arrived yesterday. DH is out of town, so now I'm wondering if I can endorse it myself and deposit it, or if it has to wait for DH--the check is made out to Brian and Sarah, but it has DH's SS#. (Feminist side rant: one of those irritating remaining bits of sexism in the world is lodged firmly in the IRS--my last name comes first alphabetically, DH and I make the same amount of money, we file our taxes jointly, I fill out the forms and put my name first, but all the correspondence from the IRS comes to him and with his SS#. What's with that?) I think I'll just try to deposit it with only my signature and see what the bank says.

If it has your name on it, they should take it. At least, my bank does. And anything with DH's name only on it, I sign his name for him, and no one has ever questioned it -- since it's going into a joint account anyway, there's nothing shady about the deposit. And he'd be willing to swear that it's his signature, should it ever come up!

My tax check is still months away -- DH's SSN ends in 93. That's twice we've been hit by that. Next time they should do it in reverse order, or start from the 6's or something!
