Tax return filed early but still has not been processed. Will this effect when I receive my rebate?

I filed my Tax Return on 1/31/08 and included the Injured Spouse Form 8379. My refund status still says delayed and when ever I call for information I get a different story. It has now been over 11 weeks and still no change in the refund status. Now I am concerned that even though I filed 3 months ago, my rebate will also be delayed. Anyone have any insight?

Yes, it sounds like your rebate will be delayed. This is from the IRS website:
"A small percentage of tax returns will require additional time to process and to compute a stimulus payment amount. For these returns, stimulus payments may not be issued in accordance with the schedule above, even if the tax return was processed by April 15."

  1. If your return hasn’t been processed yet, and especially since the injured spouse form will also apply to the rebate, the rebate will almost surely be delayed.

  3. A friend of mine who just filed her tax return was given the tax rebate with her income tax check. So you might get lucky.
