IRS Economic Stimulus Check, When will it come?

Last week, I received a letter from the IRS. At first I panicked, that is a scary feeling seeing something from them, lol. Luckily though, it was about the Economic Stimulus Check.

We should be getting $1800 back, we filed joint so that is $1200 + $300 per kid (x2)

If everything goes right, we are hoping to use it towards getting me a newer car. I have been driving the car that we bought when we got married in 1997 to save money & help pay off debts. We've done so much work to it, including replacing the engine. I just don't think it has much life in it. Plus if you remember, I got in accident a few months ago. The front end is all banged up. Plus the driver window has been broken for a couple years. That is always fun. Oh & my heat barely works, and I haven't had air in YEARS! Not that I'd use it with gas being $3.299 right now

Anyhoo, the point of my post ~ I found a great chart from the IRS that explains when you will receive your check. In the letter I received last week, it said starting May & that we would get another letter when the time got closer. I like this chart much better :)
