Rebate Checks

More Rebate Check Details


TeamSugar member frevirg pointed out one aspect of the rebate check schedule that I hadn't yet highlighted. While I paid for my tax service as soon as my tax return was filed and used my bank account, some tax services allow filers the option of having those fees taken directly from their tax refund. Frevirg was proactive and navigated around the TurboTax website, and found the following information that may be useful to some of you.

Under certain circumstances, however, the IRS has decided that taxpayers can only get their rebates by mail, even if they get their refunds by direct deposit. At TurboTax, this will happen if you use a "refund transfer" when filing your 2007 return. This service lets you pay for your tax preparation and/or e-filing from your refund proceeds, for an additional fee...

It really took some digging around on the site to find this information and not because it's unorganized. There are a lot of questions and answers surrounding the rebate check, so when you're poking around for answers be sure to take your time and read carefully. The IRS website has a wealth of information regarding the checks, which makes it a good place to check-in, so to speak.
