IRS reminder: Tax return must be filed to receive stimulus check

The Internal Revenue Service announced that individuals who normally do not file a tax return but must do so this year in order to receive their 2008 economic stimulus payment can use the IRS Free File program at to help them file returns for 2007.

IRS and several of its partners in the Free File Alliance can accept returns submitted by people who have no legal requirement to file other than to receive their payments. Once people file a tax return, they don't need to do anything more. The IRS will begin issuing payments starting in May.
