Excerpted from IRS: There’s still time to claim tax rebate (USATODAY.com):
WASHINGTON (AP) — The government on Friday sent out the last of the economic stimulus checks for people who filed tax returns before April 15.
But the Internal Revenue Service stressed that it’s not too late for those who haven’t yet filed returns to benefit from the payments.
The tax agency said it will continue processing tax returns and issuing stimulus checks for much of the year. In particular, it is urging some 5 million Social Security recipients and veterans who don’t normally need to file returns to do so this year so they can qualify for checks.
It urged this group, and people who received extensions for filing, to file by October 15 to ensure they receive a payment before the end of the year.
