IRS Sends Stimulus Payments Automatically in May

WASHINGTON (KHNL) -- Millions of taxpayers can expect to receive an automatic economic stimulus payment this year.

President Bush signed the bill Wednesday authorizing economic stimulus payments for eligible taxpayers.

The Internal Revenue Service says taxpayers will not have to do anything extra to receive the payments.

If you're eligible for a payment, all you have to do is file your 2007 income tax return.

The IRS will use information on the tax return to determine eligibility and calculate the amount of the stimulus payments.

The IRS will begin sending the payments in early May.
