  • Double check the "rules"... my husband assumed we would get a certain amount, but he looked up the rules & realized he was wrong. If you're sure you got the wrong amount, call the IRS again & DEMAND that someone explain it to you.

  • Also, if you owed any backtaxes...they WILL deduct that out of your rebate!

  • Yes I read there are all kinds of reasons you might not get the total you thought you would. If you did not make enough money or made too much you could qualify for a lower rebate. You also could have back taxes deducted etc. There is also an issue where a certain number of people did not get the correct rebate for their children and will be getting another check to correct that issue. My sister-in-law did not get hers at all but she can't get any answers either.

  • My brother didn't get credit for his two kids, even though he and his wife claimed them as dependents? Can't get the IRS to answer the phone!
