Here are some of the benefits, from my email:
The "Making Work Pay" Credit for 2009 and 2010 is a tax credit for up to $400 for working individuals and up to $800 for couples.
Retirees and disabled individuals
Those receiving Social Security benefits and individuals on disability will receive a one-time payment of $250 in 2009.
Temporary suspension of taxation on unemployment benefits. The jobless get a little more help with a $25 increase in weekly benefit checks through 2009 and suspension of federal tax on the first $2,400 of unemployment benefits received in 2009.
First-time home buyers
First-time home buyer credit increased to $8,000 for qualified first-time home buyers purchasing homes after Dec. 31, 2008 and before Dec. 1, 2009; repayment requirement waived unless sold or no longer principal residence within 36 months.
The "American Opportunity Tax Credit" - an enhanced Hope Credit that provides 100% credit for the first $2,000 and 25% for the next $2,000 on qualified expenses such as tuition and books; the credit is 40% refundable, meaning even taxpayers who have no tax liability can receive a credit for 40% of qualified education expenses, up to $1,000.
