WASHINGTON (CNN)-- American taxpayers would get checks of several hundred dollars from the federal government under a plan to stimulate the economy, sources said Thursday.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is the administration's point person for the economic stimulus plan.

Congressional leaders of both parties were talking with their membership to sell the plan, sources said.

Sources on Capitol Hill and at the Treasury Department said congressional and White House negotiators agreed upon checks of $600 per individual and $1,200 per couple who paid income tax and who filed jointly.

People who did not pay federal income taxes but who had earned income of more than $3,000 would get checks of $300 per individual or $600 per couple.

A Democratic aide and Republican aide said there will be an additional amount per child, which could be in the neighborhood of $300.

Those who earn up to $75,000 individually or up to $150,000 as a couple will be eligible for the payments, said Republican and Democratic sources familiar with the tentative deal.

I don't know all the stipulations yet, but i think you have wait till feb 19th or something to file your taxes!

This is 'fiat' money, the presses are rolling, nice to own printing presses to make money, and better yet, the Fed no longer publishes 'M3' At the risk of repeating myself, hang on to your @sses, inflation is on the rise.

They did something like this back around 2000 right?? I don't know what it was for. All I knew is they were giving us a little extra change back.

the government doesn't give money away. the only reason they are even proposing this stimulus package is because of the financial mess this administration has got us in. the economic package will not have the effect that they are hoping and will only result in more debt for the country. it's a desperate move by desperate people and when everyone looks back on it in the future it will show to be another bad decision by the administration.

There's nothing free anymore...it's all a mind game. As nice as the idea of free money is, I look at it as hush money to calm the nation of the financial hell hole that it has fallen into. Ofcourse, I'll gladly take the $$$, but don't think for a second that I consider this a form of economic stimulation. Increasing minimum wage or lowering the cost of food and gas is an example of economic stimulation. Not a one time check to excite the nation. I prefer help to make my day to day expenses easier.

if you are single and make $75,000 or more you won't qualify for the "rebate".
a couple has a limit of $140,000 or so.

i wasn't coming down on anyone for the name of the title, just stating my opinion. if you look at my comment there were no capitals used or exclamation points so take a deep breath and relax. i'm not getting a "rebate" either and i don't think it's a big deal.
this rebate idea is only going to get us deeper in debt and i doubt that much of it will actually find it's way back into the economy so there won't be any stimulus except to stimulate our national debt.
