No. It is considered a refund of overpaid federal tax, which is never taaxable. The Stimulus Check will be considered as income when filing your 2007 federal tax return. If you will remember in years past when the IRS has issued these types of "rebates", the following year, they were added back into your income for tax purposes. The purpose of the checks were to boost the economy and you need to remember that the federal government does not give away billons for "free". It was definitely not a refund on your taxes. Sharon

Unless you are receiving Social Security or Veterans Disability benefits, you will not be receiving a separate stimulus check this year. If you did not receive the maximum stimulus last year and are eligible for more based on your 2008 return, that amount was already included in your refund check or used to reduce the tax due. The Making Work Pay credit will be credited to you when you file your 2009 return and 2009 withholding rates have been reduced to account for this.
