IRS stimulus Checks still available

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Citizens who qualify for their economic stimulus payment, but have not gotten it, still have time.

In order to get a check, a tax return must be filed.

But Texans only have until October 15.

For those who file at this time, the economic stimulus payment should be received by Christmas or New Year's, according to the IRS.

The IRS expects to issue 124 million payments to Americans by year's end.

Eligible individuals can receive up to $600.

And IRS officials stress, even those who don't normally file because their income is too low or non-taxable, may still be eligible to receive a check.
