To help clear up some confusion for seniors, Mark Justice gives this advice. The IRS will be sending economic stimulus rebate checks to qualifying persons this year. To qualify to receive that money, a person must file an income tax return. If you don't normally file because you are not required, his office will file your return at no charge. To do so you need to have your pension, social security, interest and dividend statements available. Call for an appointment 435-687-2403.
