Many people are looking forward to a tax refund as part of the 2008 Stimulus Package. These checks won't be coming til the Summer, but for those who want to know sooner there's a tax rebate calculator online that can tell you exactly just how much to expect.

All you have to do is fill out some information and click away to calculate. Before using this calculator you first need to complete your 2007 tax return.

Not all taxpayers are eligible for this refund and the web site gives you a breakdown of all this information. The basic rebate will be $600 and double that amount for married couples filing jointly.

There's also an extra $300 per child. But there's always a couple of exceptions to the rule. Head to the On-Air-Links Section on our website for a link to the Tax Rebate Calculator.
