REVISED - Stimulus Package Benefit for Social Security Recipients

~~~~~It's not too late!~~~~~

Sorry, folks, but I was really mistaken regarding the stimulus package benefit for Social Security recipients. Here is the revised version:

If you know of anyone who is on Social Security, please remind them that they may be eligible to receive up to $600 each from the government if they file their 2007 tax form. They must file even if they do not have taxable income or a tax bill. If they are only filing for the rebate, the deadline is October 15, not April 15.

You may apply online on their behalf for free at http://turbotax.intuit.com. There is even a shortcut through this service just for people who are only applying for the stimulus benefit. I did this for an elderly friend of mine over the phone today in about 10 minutes.

For more up-to-date information, please go to the IRS website:


So, think.......Who can you be a blessing to before October 15 at midnight?
