Stimulus Payment for Seniors

As we are continue on into the throes of the 2007/2008 tax season, I thought it important to share information with you regarding the impact of Bush's Tax Stimulus Payment plan on senior adults.

Below I have provided critical information I received from my Council On Aging/Passport Social Worker. Hopefully, both caregivers and senior adults will find this information useful. Within the memorandum there are web links to resources for additional information.

Re: Stimulus Payment for seniors

Several of you have asked us what your clients need to do in order to receive the payment from the federal government on the Stimulus Package. The ONLY way to get a check this year is by filing a federal tax return for 2007. Even though many of our clients may no longer routinely file income tax returns they will need to do so if they want to receive the stimulus payment. Below are some questions and answers that may help you when discussing this with your clients:

What do I need to do to get the stimulus payment?

  • You need to file a federal income tax return for 2007 even if you routinely have not done this.
  • You will need to report all your income, deductions and credits
  • You do not need to calculate the amount of the stimulus package

How do I find out if I am eligible?
Most people with a net 2007 income will quality. Some people with no tax liability will also qualify including social security and railroad retirement beneficiaries, recipients of certain veterans’ payments, low income workers with earned income of at least $3,000 and individuals who have a combined income of at least $3,000 from any combination of these sources.

Will receiving an economic stimulus payment affect my eligibility for other programs such as food stamps, social security, etc.?
No.

How do I know if I am one of the individuals that will not get a stimulus payment

  • If you don’t file a 2007 tax return
  • If your net income tax liability is zero and your qualifying income is less than $3,000
  • If you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return
  • If you do not have a valid Social Security number
  • If you file Form 1040NR; form 1040NR-EZ or form 1040SS for 2007

Where do I get help to complete my tax forms? (* see resources below)

  • Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) will help folks with low to moderate income (generally, $40,000 and below). Call 1-800-829-1040 for a site near you.
  • AARP Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Program has trained volunteers to help those 60 and older with tax filing.

What information do I need to have my taxes prepared?

  • Proof of identification
  • Social Security cards for you, your spouse and dependents
  • Birth dates for you, your spouse and dependents
  • Current year’s tax package if you received one
  • Wage and earnings statement(s); W-2, W-2G, 1099 – R
  • Interest and dividend statements from banks
  • A copy of last year’s returns, if available
  • Bank routing numbers and Account numbers for direct deposit

* IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers:

  • 550 Main Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202: 513-263-3333
  • 9075 Centre Pointe Drive, West Chester, Ohio 45069: 513-263-3333

* AARP Tax Assistance: Just enter your client’s zip code and it will list locations where tax help is available.

I'm 65 yrs old and am not very sharp anymore to say the least.
In April I mailed the IRS my SSA-1099 2007 earnings statement with "STIMULUS PAYMENT" written across the top of it trying to get the stimulus payment instead of filing a return as i have no taxable income just social security. Well I thought thats all they would need but I 've not heard from them. Help please !!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real income.
It's all about how to select a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
