I recently received a $1200 check form the IRS…..I filed and extenstion on my taxes and certainly was not expecting any monies back… I actually scratched my head wondering what this was for – after some research – figured out is was my households Stimulus check.
Have you not received your 2007 Stimulus Break?
An estimated 4 million individuals are still eligible to received the payment by filing a 2008 income tax t return. For a single filer, the minimum payment is $300 and the maximum is $600. For couples the payments range from $600 to $1200. You must file a tax return with the Internal Revenue Service.
Who is eligible??
Those that have received at least $3000 in Social Security benefits, veteran’s benefits, certain railroad retirement benefits or earned income in 2007.
If you normally do not file a tax return, complete Form 1040A, available at www.irs.gov.
