Hey, does anyone know if they've stopped sending out the economic stimulus checks? I haven't recieved one yet, but I filed my taxes this year. By the way, what do you think about them? Is it true that we will get 300$ per child and 300$ for ourselves?

I actually got mine a month after they said I would get it according to their schedule. I think they're still going to be giving them out until the end of July. How much you get depends on many factors. Most single adults will get around $600 and $300 for each child, but I don't know if there's a limit as to how many $300 checks you can get. About two weeks before you get your money, you should get a letter saying how much you are going to get. You can also check online at the IRS.gov website.

They are still mailing out the checks and will continue through July, from what I've read. I had direct deposit, so I got mine awhile back. You can go to irs.gov for more up to date information. Probably more reliable than what I can tell you, too. I hope your check is on the way!

How the stimulus checks will be processed is determined by the last two digits of your social security number. Everyone I know already received their checks. Probably because I am 3 weeks later responding to this discussion. I think the checks have been a good idea to help with various expenses such as an increase in gasoline and groceries. Because of our income level, we won't be receiving the checks.

I got mine in May because I did direct deposit. It wasn't the full $600 I was suppose to get either. I hear that a lot of people are getting their full amount. So I don't know what up with them. My parents and my friends didn't get theirs either. One of them had thiers taxes go direct deposit and nothing yet. I hope you, my family, and friends get theirs real soon too!! Good Luck!
