ALS Is A Taxing Disease

IRS Amends Rebate Notices
Associated Press March 11, 2008;

WASHINGTON -- The Internal Revenue Service said it will contact about 20.5 million people who receive Social Security or Veterans Affairs benefits to ensure they don't miss out on the economic-stimulus payment of at least $300.

The IRS previously announced it was sending 130 million letters to households that filed returns for the 2006 tax season to remind them that they must file a return to receive the stimulus payment.

This mailing drew criticism from Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.), who said the agency was spending nearly $42 million to contact people who normally file returns and would get their payments automatically.


Senator Schumer just saved us more than enough for an ALS registry and a whole lot of ALS research!
