SQL: Drop temp table if exists is returning error

Error: There is already an object named '#tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate' in the database.

Before creating a temp table, I am checking if one already exists, but am receiving an error message, and don't know why.

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#tmpAnticipatedRelease') IS NOT NULL                         
DROP TABLE #tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate 
GO  

-- Reference table containing anticipated release dates for all disbursements               
CREATE TABLE #tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate                
(                
DisbursementId INT NOT NULL,                
AnticipatedReleaseDate DATETIME               
)                
CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX cx ON #tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate(DisbursementId, AnticipatedReleaseDate)     


;WITH 
cteInstallmentHoldDueDate AS (
SELECT 
	InSc.InstallmentScheduleId, Insc.DueDate, 
	Di.DisbursementId, Di.Amount, Di.ReleaseDate, DiH.DisbursementHoldId, DiH.DisbursementHoldTypeId, DiH.HoldValue
FROM 
	Disbursement Di
	JOIN DisbursementHold DiH ON DiH.DisbursementId = Di.DisbursementId AND DiH.DisbursementHoldTypeId = 1
	JOIN InstallmentSchedule InSc ON InSc.CustomerAccountId = Di.PartyId AND InSc.InstallmentNumber = DiH.HoldValue
)

INSERT INTO #tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate (DisbursementId, AnticipatedReleaseDate)

SELECT Di.DisbursementId, Di.ReleaseDate
FROM 
	Disbursement Di

Object name is slightly off in the IF:

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate') IS NOT NULL                        
    DROP TABLE #tmpAnticipatedReleaseDate
