Payment Information for Those Who Normally Don't File


Notice: Historical Content

This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current law, policies or procedures.

If you normally don’t file a federal tax return but must file one this year solely to claim your economic stimulus payment, you should file by Oct. 15, 2008, to ensure that you receive the payment this year. It will generally take a minimum of eight weeks after you file your return to get your stimulus payment.
