You've heard the expression, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is." But in this case, "it" is true. Cash is available to those in the 65-plus set and to people with disabilities, and it's worth up to $900 for married couples.
The payments are targeted to those with lower incomes, and Kim Deti (dee-tie) with the Wyoming Department of Health says there's no doubt those folks need a little extra financial help this year.
Deti says some new applications have to be filed each year, and the amount paid and eligibility are also often adjusted.
Those with a 2008 income of less that $17,500 for a single person, or $28,500 for a married couple qualify. Applications have to be postmarked today for the refund, which is officially called the Elderly and Disabled Tax Refund Program. Senior centers around the state have the applications on hand, or you can call the toll-free number, 1-866-989-8901
