Five one-time relief checks ranging from $75 to $1,050 due next week – find out if your state is sending money
Next week, five relief checks will be issued to Americans in a total of five states.
State and local governments have rolled out rebates across the country to help struggling Americans as they face extreme inflation and economic uncertainty in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Depending on where you live, several checks will arrive at the residents as early as next week.
1. California: $1,050
Californians have been receiving their middle-class tax refunds regularly since October.
The payments are still coming next week, however, as the state said it will also ship debit cards from October 25 to January 15, 2023.
The state provided between $200 and $1,050 to 23 million Californians.
The first round ended on October 25, and direct deposits were issued between October 28 and November 14.
2. Hawaii: $200-$300
Hawaii sends its residents $200 to $300 depending on their eligibility.
All refunds will be sent to those filing their state tax returns by December 31, 2022. So watch out for the payment next week.
To qualify for the check, you must have lived in Hawaii for at least nine months.
Single taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of less than $100,000 receive $300 per person.
Couples earning less than $200,000 will also receive $300 per person in their household. This means a family of four could get $1,200.
3. Idaho: $75
Depending on when you filed your tax returns, you might get a $75 refund from the state of Idaho next week.
Earlier this year, the state approved a bill that would provide $350 million in tax refunds.
To qualify, taxpayers must be considered full-time residents and have filed tax returns for 2020 and 2021.
In addition, full-time Idaho residents must have filed food credit refund claims.
The rebates began in March and will account for $75, or 12 percent of your 2020 Idaho state taxes.
However, those who haven’t filed a tax return must do so by December 31 to claim the money.
4. Maine: $850
Maine will continue to send out $850 worth of checks through next week through the end of the year.
The rebate checks are worth $850 per person and $1,700 for an average family.
To qualify for a rebate check, you must meet a few requirements.
In terms of income, an individual cannot exceed $100,000, while heads of household and couples can earn up to $150,000 and $200,000 respectively.
These will be based on tax returns for 2021, which had to be submitted by October at the latest.
5. South Carolina: $800
Many South Carolina residents should have already started receiving their one-time payment of $800, but payments will continue next week through Christmas.
The state has allowed those who filed their 2021 income tax returns by Oct. 17 to receive a one-time payment of up to $800, but the amount you receive depends on your 2021 tax liability.
Some cities have also launched their own universal basic income programs, including San Francisco, where residents could potentially earn $1,200 a month if they apply by next week.
Meanwhile, another city has approved $400 a month in direct payments to help combat food insecurity among residents.
