Why would it be on the paper check schedule if I selected direct deposit?Short answer: They lied.Long answer: There were a bunch of problems that weren't anticipated, one being that they couldn't capture direct deposit information as they had thought they could. That's why their FAQ said in February that if you e-filed and paid via direct deposit you'd get direct deposit of the advance payment. They changed it in March.As to your other question, no. The stimulus credit is a refundable credit calculated on your 2008 return. The advance payment, which is what's being sent now, is an estimate of that credit based on your 2007 return information. If you don't get an advance payment and you don't qualify for the credit on your 2008 return you'll not get anything.You should get the advance payment, just not as soon as you thought. And you don't have to pay it back even if you don't qualify on your 2008 return.Phil
