I realized today that it is almost the end of May and we did not receive our economic stimulus check. I decided to look into why we didn't receive it by doing a search on Google. I found the IRS website and learned that the checks were being sent out according to the last two digits of your social security number. They had a payment schedule based on direct deposit or paper check. Those who set up their tax return with direct deposit could have got payments starting April 28th and those who received their return in the mail could have received payments starting May 9th.
The only information that wasn't provided were for people who were married filing jointly. They are issuing a joint check but they haven't stated under whose social security number the payment will be scheduled for! Now we might have to wait for the end of July! I guess we can think of it as "Christmas in July.."
