Stimulus Break

Still haven’t claimed your 2007 economic stimulus payment? An estimated 4 million individuals are still eligible to receive the payment by filing a 2008 income tax return. For a single filer, the minimum payment is $300 and the maximum is $600; for couples, payments range from $600 to $1,200.
