Waiting

We have a van in for some major repairs this week. So instead of some dental work, homeschool materials, and a nice cushion in the savings account, we are getting a new-to-us transmission. Oh boy.

Both of our social security numbers end in digits less than 20, we filed our taxes electronically in March so according to everything I'm reading we should have the check in the bank. But it is not. I'm obsessively checking and it just isn't there.

I'm afraid that the IRS has decided that somehow we just aren't qualified or something. They wouldn't do that, right? Tell me that wouldn't do that.

Sorry about the transmission. :( Emily is checking and waiting and checking too, and wondering if she was claimed as a dependent last year. Ugh! We're waiting too -- but I don't think we were to be first.

Oh Monica... I am sorry! That is so frustrating. We haven't received our check either and Monte ended up calling. They told him the check wouldn't be mailed unitl the 23rd. We also thought it was going to be direct deposit.

Not sure which is less fun, spending money at the dentist or the mechanic.

We haven't even filed our taxes yet...it's totally my husbands job.

Oh, I am so sorry about your van and the extra $ it is costing! The IRS can't keep your money :) - it will come, eventually. But do call if you are really concerned.

Nothing like car trouble to make a dent in the savings. Unexpected expenses sure do hurt! Don't know about the check - we've been looking also and it's not there yet!
Hope it arrives soon!

We've been waiting as well. Offically we were supposed to get it the 6th, then "they" said many were coming out a week early. Either way, it's the 8th and still not here.

I was wondering about the refund too - I have no idea when ours is coming! And I don't know anyone who has received it yet.
Maybe it's fictional :D

I assure you they are not fictional :) Michelle got hers this week. I hope yours is deposited soon!!
