ANYWHERE, USA -- I thought this information could be important for those who usually don't file an income tax return and earn over $3,000 a year. If this pertains to you or someone you know, please read this important information.
Qualifying income is earned income, as well as Social Security benefits, railroad retirement benefits and veterans' disability compensation, pension or survivors' benefits.
These people usually aren't required to file a tax return, but this year they definitely should so they can receive their economic stimulus payment. They are the people that this could benefit most and they need to know that they must file a tax return in order to receive their payment.
To make it even more cost effective, low and moderate-income workers can get FREE tax help through the AARP Tax-Aide Program. To find a site near you, call IRS at 800-829-1040 or AARP at 888-227-7669 or visit the AARP Web site at 222.aarp.org/money/taxaide.
The article that I read today said most of these non-filers will probably not be aware of what they need to do, so please pass this on to your friends or loved ones. I know that these individuals could really use this extra boost.
