It's not too late for the 483 Hermiston residents who have not filed a tax return to receive their economic stimulus checks.
The Internal Revenue Service says those folks are among 80,000 people statewide who have not filed a return, which would qualify them for an economic stimulus check.
At least $24 million would be injected into Oregon's economy if all those people were to receive a check, said IRS spokeswoman Kathy Howell.
Disabled veterans and retirees are most likely not to file an income tax return, Howell said, because they may not have had to file for several years or need assistance with the paper work.
Even those who live on Social Security or a combination of Social Security and veterans or disability pensions, are eligible for a payment, Howell said.
Every person who qualifies will receive at least $300, she added, if the Oct. 15 deadline is met
