The U.S. Economic Stimulus Act of 2008

The Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 will provide economic stimulus payments to more than 130 million American households.  To receive a payment, taxpayers must have a valid Social Security number, $3,000 in income and file a U.S. federal tax return. Eligible individuals will receive up to $600 ($1,200 for married couples), and parents will receive an additional payment of $300 for each qualifying child younger than 17.  Millions of retirees, disabled veterans and low-wage workers who are usually exempt from filing a tax return should consider filing this year in order to receive a stimulus payment.
