The Internal Revenue Service is reaching out to veterans urging them to file a 2007 tax return, even if they are not required.
Veterans could receive a payment from $300 to $600 or more.
Those who qualify do not have to file next year, and the money received isn’t taxable next year either.
The economic stimulus payment does not impact the benefits veterans are currently receiving.
The IRS will mail or direct deposit the funds; the deadline to file is October 15.
For more information, contact the Veterans Services Office at 850-892-8140.
