By now, pretty much every (and their mother!) has heard about the tax rebate stimulus checks that the Federal government will be sending out. In order to claim your rebate, all you have to you have to file an income tax return.

What about people who wouldn’t otherwise have to file a tax return?

It’s actually possible for you to qualify for the tax rebate program even if you wouldn’t otherwise be required to file a tax return. So what can you do to ensure that you get your slice of the pie? Simple. Just visit the Free File – Economic Stimulus Payment page at — they list numerous ways of filing a return (for free!) for the sole purpose of qualifying for the tax rebate. If you’re wondering how long it will take for your payment to arrive, look no further than the tax stimulus rebate payment schedule.

So what are you waiting for? Get to it, and then go out and start stimulating the economy…

  1. Oh man, talk about BS – people who don’t file income taxes but get a rebate. Thats what we call an “extra government handout.” Good thing my kids and grandkids and their kids will all get to pay back this “rebate” which is actually just deficit spending 🙁

  2. This entire stimulus package is nothing but a way to continue money to go out of the country. It really doesn’t benefit anyone other than sales people hawking wares from Asia or other foreign lands.

  6. To whom this may concern; I am writing to ask why it is that I never got a stimulus check from your company, for I filed my 2007 taxes in 2008 and had my dependents whom are my grandchildren, but I have full custody ( guardianship) of them. So again, I am unsure why I did not receive a check and unsure what to do to get some answers. If someone can help I would greatly appreciate it, thank you very much for your time, hope we can get some answer. Take Care!!!
