IRS Targeting Americans Eligible for Economic Stimulus Payment Who Are Not Required to File Income Taxes
Washington, D.C. – (March 26, 2008)Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today encouraged residents of the Greater Metroplex to participate in Super Saturday, to be held this Saturday, March 29, across the country.
On Super Saturday, the Internal Revenue Service and its partner organizations will provide tax preparation assistance to Americans in hundreds of offices nationwide, targeting those who are eligible for the upcoming economic stimulus payment, but who are not required to file an income tax return.
The Recovery Rebates and Economic Stimulus for the American People Act, which Congresswoman Johnson supported, will provide tax rebates to 117 million households in the U.S., including 8.6 million Texans.Payments will range from $300 to $600 for individuals and $600 to $1200 for joint filers, and many of those eligible will receive an additional $300 for each qualifying child.Many Americans who are not required to file an income tax return will be eligible for the stimulus payment; however, they must file a return this year in order to receive it.
“I encourage all residents of North Texas to consider filing an income tax return this Saturday, when they can get any additional help they might need,” Congresswoman Johnson said.“The stimulus payments will be a financial bonus for many people in our district, and it is important that everyone eligible to receive one does so.I particularly encourage military personnel with nontaxable combat pay, low-income individuals, older Americans and recipients of Railroad Retirement benefits to participate in Super Saturday.”
The Dallas Internal Revenue Service office, located in the CabellFederalBuilding at 1100 Commerce St., will be open local time on Super Saturday.
