Economic Stimulus Payments
We are concerned that the individuals and families making from $3,000 to $20,000 will miss out on the stimulus money because they do not file taxes. The deadline is October 15, 2008. In addition, individuals or families receiving Social Security benefits, Veterans’ disability compensation, and pension or survivors’ benefits with incomes of $3,000 or more can qualify. They must file a tax return to receive the money. If everyone eligible files, it will bring $2.7 million to Mercer County. The payments will be sent to the tax filer without any additional paper work. The IRS, Veterans Affairs and Social Security Administration are mailing informational packets. For more information go to
