NB residents owed rebates
October 2, 2008 · Updated 5:50 PM
The IRS estimates that 191 North Bend residents have not filed for their economic stimulus payments.
The tax rebate pays up to $600 ($1,200 for married couples filing joint returns), plus $300 for eligible children younger than 17 years. For those who have no tax liability or no tax filing requirement, there is a minimum payment of $300 ($600 for married couples), plus $300 for each qualifying child, for those who file a 2007 tax return.
To get their payment, residents must file a 2007 tax return. In many instances, people who have no regular filing requirement do not realize that they are entitled to these payments.
