While the federal government is unlikely to issue a fourth stimulus check, states like California are slowing the sending of stimulus money to their residents.
Besides California, here are some other states giving money to their residents this year:
According to CBS News, Californians will receive up to $1,050 in stimulus checks to head toward “inflation relief.”
The checks come from the $308 billion state budget signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday. The inflation relief check qualifies as a tax refund that sends a total of $9.5 billion back to Californians.
In May, Delaware began sending $300 relief exemption payments to taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2020 due to budget surpluses. Most Delaware residents received those payments in May, and couples who apply together can receive $300 each.
Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation providing sabbatical payments of $250 for individual claimants, $375 for heads of households, and $500 for joint claimants. This economic stimulus package also came from a budget surplus in the country.
Maine recently began sending up to $850 in relief checks to its residents after the state ran a budget surplus.
All Maine residents must file a 2021 income tax return as a full-time resident of the state by October 31, 2022 by visiting this website to receive the check.
Phil Murphy has proposed setting aside $53 million for a $500 payment for people who file their taxes using a tax identification number instead of a social security number. This is in addition to the fall of 2021, when Murphy and the state legislature approved a budget that included $500 checks for New Jersey’s 1 million residents.
Earlier in March, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham approved a measure granting residents a $250 and $500 waiver for all residents earning less than $75,000 a year. The $250 rebate will be given this month, while the $500 rebate will be sent in two payments – one in June and the other in August.
About 236,000 low-income Oregon residents who have worked during the pandemic will receive a $600 payout, according to the Oregon Department of Revenue.
To receive these payments, residents must have claimed the state income tax credit (EITC) on their 2020 income tax return and have resided in Oregon for the last six months of 2020.
