Over 1.4 Million American are Eligible for Unclaimed Tax Rebates
Liberty Tax Service Offers a Variety of Tax Preparation Options for Filers Still Eligible for Tax Rebate Checks
June 27, 2008 // Franchising.com // (Virginia Beach, VA) It's like an unclaimed lottery ticket due to expire. Over 1.4 million Americans are still eligible to receive a tax stimulus rebate, but they must file a 2007 tax return by October 15th. Liberty Tax Service provides an immediate online tax preparation solution for filing through its eSmart Tax product, accessible on the company Web site at http://www.libertytax.com/online-tax-preparation.html. It's easy to figure the amount of a tax stimulus rebate by using Liberty's online tax rebate calculator at http://www.libertytax.com. Liberty Tax offices will provide free advice and answers to questions regarding the tax stimulus rebates or any tax issue.
Many people who receive Social Security and veterans benefits are likely to overlook this opportunity to get the stimulus payment. Persons not normally required to file a tax return may still qualify for this one-time tax stimulus, but may miss the opportunity by not filing a 2007 return. This group includes low income workers, or those who receive Social Security benefits or veterans' disability compensation, pension or survivors benefits received from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2007. They will be eligible to receive a payment of $300 ($600 on a joint return) if they had at least $3,000 of qualifying income. Qualifying income includes Social Security benefits, certain Railroad Retirement benefits, certain veterans' benefits, and earned income, such as income from wages, salaries, tips and self-employment.
"Liberty Tax Service wants to help everyone eligible get the rebate they are entitled to receive before the October 15th deadline passes," noted John Hewitt, CEO of Liberty Tax Service. "We hope those with questions will contact us, and take advantage of our available resources."
Those with questions can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or call 866-871-1040 to be directly connected to the nearest Liberty Tax Service office.
Representatives from Liberty Tax Service are available to comment on this program as well.
