I thought I was getting my check, but read this from the Turbo Tax Site: http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/kb/tax-content/tax-tips/5462.html
How will I receive it?
Most people will receive their rebates the same way they choose to receive refunds on their tax returns -- by direct deposit into their bank or other accounts, or by check in the mail.
If you haven't filed a return yet and you qualify for a rebate, you can select either method when you file.
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, under an agreement with Santa Barbara Bank & Trust .
The IRS also says that taxpayers who use "refund anticipation loans" or RALs (loans made to tax filers against their expected refunds) will also be unable to receive their rebates by direct deposit. TurboTax does not offer RALs.
The IRS reminds you, if you haven’t filed, that using direct deposit is the fastest way to get both your regular refund and your rebate.
SO I GUESS I WILL WAIT FOR THE MAILMAN!
