IRS urges millions to claim tax stimulus rebates

Millions of Americans will receive letters from the Internal Revenue Service
this week urging them to file tax returns and claim tax rebates available under
the economic stimulus package.

The mail alerts will continue through March as the IRS promotes the one-time
stimulus payment of $600 (£302) per person who files a return, WebCPA

The payments start in May, alongside an additional $300m payment for children
under the age of 17.

‘These letters are the first step in an extensive outreach effort Treasury
and the IRS will be leading over the weeks ahead to inform qualified Americans
how to get their stimulus payment,’ Treasury secretary Henry Paulson said.
