2013 Stimulus Check
2013 Stimulus Check
Will there be a stimulus check in 2013?
I have not heard anything about it yet, but if President Obama and the Congress decide to issue a stimulus check for 2013, this IRS page will probably be updated.
How much is an economic stimulus check?
In 2008, the IRS sent individuals a rebate check that was between $300 and $600. Joint filers got a check between $600 and $1,200. Eligible children added an extra $300.
Where can I find out more?

Have Your Say
Everyone likes getting a check in the mail, but some people believe that an economic stimulus check doesn't actually stimulate the economy.
Do you think there should be an economic stimulus check in 2013?
