Oh How I Hate That

I got this in my email today...

Dear Valued Customer,

We want to provide you with the most up–to–date information about the tax rebate to which you may be entitled.

Recently, you may have received a letter from the IRS advising you when to expect your Economic Stimulus Payment (rebate). That IRS letter may have inadvertently left off some important information. Taxpayers who chose to have their tax preparation fees deducted from their federal tax refund will receive their tax rebate in the mail, not via direct deposit.

Our records show that you chose this payment option in TurboTax. As a result, the IRS has determined that you will receive your tax rebate in the mail. This may result in you receiving your rebate on a date later than expected.

This situation, while not unique to TurboTax, is understandably causing some concern and confusion. To help further clarify the situation, below is the most current IRS rebate payment processing schedule, as well as additional resources about the tax rebates.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, the best source for the most up-to-date information is (see the "Rebate Payment Questions" link).

Well, at least now I know why I haven't received it yet. Would have been nice to know this information earlier though. Like when I filed them in January!

Why don't we just quit paying taxes? The morons in D.C. don't know what to do with the money anyway.

Bad couple days for the Bug - sorry. Must be post floor-done-but-not-quite-yet-says-the-BOSS syndrome. :)

Stay tuned, I may be back with a new feature...
