    Economic Stimulus Package- Treasury Payments

    Thursday, March 13th, 2008

    Don’t Miss Out on the Economic Stimulus Package!
    In May, the Treasury will begin sending out payments as part of the economic stimulus package. More than 130 million households will receive between $300 and $1,200. Most people are automatically eligible after filing a 2007 federal tax return. But millions of others—including low-income workers and those who receive Social Security benefits or veterans’ disability compensation, pension or survivors’ benefits—may not normally file a return. If anyone you know is in this group, let them know that they must file a 2007 tax return to receive a stimulus payment.
