AUGUSTA -- Are you one of millions of Americans who need to file a tax return this year solely to obtain your economic stimulus payment? The IRS has set aside Saturday, March 29 as "Super Saturday," a day of help just for you!

Approximately 320 IRS offices will provide free help preparing a simple 1040A for people who are filing solely to receive their stimulus payment. In addition hundreds of IRS partners will be opening their doors on that day offering free help too.

Most individuals do not have to do anything special this year to receive their payment. However, many Social Security, Veterans' and Railroad Retirement benefits recipients, and low-income workers who don’t normally need to file a tax return will need to file one for 2007 to receive a stimulus payment.

Filers must have received at least $3,000 of qualifying income to receive a stimulus payment. Qualifying income includes Social Security benefits, certain Railroad Retirement benefits, certain veterans’ benefits and earned income, such as income from wages, salaries, tips and self-employment.

You can find the nearest IRS office or partner site providing free assistance on Super Saturday at or by calling the IRS Volunteer Site Hotline 1-800-906-9887.

The best source of information about stimulus payments is at the Web site. The public may also call 1-866-234-2942 on March 29 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for answers to questions on stimulus payments.

 Remember that for the genuine IRS Web site be sure to use .gov. Don't be confused by internet sites that end in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov. The address of the official IRS governmental Web site is
