Want that money or not?

The IRS needs your help.

Starting in May, economic stimulus payments of up to $600 for individuals ($1,200 for married couples) will be issued by the IRS based on 2007 tax returns. Parents also get $300 for each eligible child.

People must file a 2007 tax return. That’s it. But here’s where the IRS needs help. Millions of people are eligible but may not know it. These are certain retirees, disabled vets and low-wage workers who normally don’t file a tax return. This year, they must file to receive the payments.

People can help not just the IRS but perhaps themselves, friends or family. Help us spread the word. People who have at least $3,000 from wages or certain benefits from Social Security, Railroad Retirement and Veterans Affairs may be eligible.

They need to file a return. We’ll do the rest. Please, visit www.irs.gov for details.
