Was it my tax refund or the stimulus check deposited?
Hi gang. I don't normally care about this stuff but found it odd. There's a pending deposit in my checking account by US TREASURY 220 TAX REFUND of X amount of dollars. I know that my roommate got mail from the IRS saying hers would be deposited on or around 5/30 and I did not get that at all. I didn't expect mine this early because I filed one week late because the envelope was returned for improper postage. I didn't expect to receive it until the July distribution or so. My refund is supposed to be a lot larger than what was deposited so I think this may have been the stimulus check. But...this stimulus check looks like one of the bigger numbers that some people with a lot of dependents were throwing around. I only claim my mom as a dependent so that's what has me thinking something might be amiss with my actual tax refund. Also, I have already received my NY State refund, so this can't be it. I'm going to call the IRS during regular business hours today to discuss it. My questions are: + Did this happen to other people? Receiving their stimulus checks before the actual refund? + Did your deposit line in your checking account look like this or something else for the stimulus vs. the actual refund: US TREASURY 220 TAX REFUND. I'm in New York State if that matters (different distribution center). + Could some of the people who received more than $1200 please state if they got significantly more than that? I know some got $2000 or more. Thanks all. ETA: I called them around 8:45 this morning and it took a whole hour to resolve it. That was only a partial refund because the person who processed my return thought the my mother's initial was the first letter of her last name so then, "it didn't match up" and she wasn't added as a dependent. Who the fuck does that? If the names are so close together, then just use common sense. Idiots. Anyway, the gentleman on the phone changed it and said the rest of my refund should deposit in 3 - 4 weeks and closer to 3 weeks. What a mess. Thanks again y'all.
