Email News Alerts

The government began depositing tax rebate checks in thousands of bank accounts Monday as the stimulus program aimed at giving the ailing economy a jump-start got under way early.


The Internal Revenue Service started making the direct deposits Monday with the goal of completing 800,000 payments each day over the first three days of this week.

No deposits will be made Thursday while the IRS prepares a big batch of 5 million direct deposits scheduled on Friday.
