In 2022, there are dozens of states that announced tax rebates. Have a look at which are still sending payments in the New Year.
2023 Stimulus Payments: States Still Sending Out Checks
According to a published post by CNET, at the beginning of the year, numerous states are still issuing tax refunds and stimulus checks announced in 2022. $3 billion surplus tax revenue started distribution for residents of Massachusetts in November. In relation to this, California officials don’t expect to finish issuing the state’s “middle-class tax refunds” until mid-January.
The state’s $2 billion property tax relief program for New Jersey homeowners hasn’t even started release yet. The said program was signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy last summer and won’t likely go out until spring.
There is a big chance that your state could still be sending out checks. See the qualifications and how much you could be paid.
California residents are to receive inflation relief checks of up to $1,050, either as a direct deposit or a debit card. The state expects 95% of the payments to go out this year, with the remaining checks reportedly arriving by Jan. 15, 2023.
The amount California residents will receive will depend on their income, tax-filing status, and household size.
- Those single taxpayers who earn less than $75,000 annually and couples who file jointly and earn less than $150,000 annually will receive $350 per taxpayer and an additional $350 if they have any dependents. Therefore, a married couple with children could receive as much as $1,050.
- Those individual filers who make between $75,000 and $125,000 annually and couples who earn between $150,000 and $250,000 annually will receive $250 per taxpayer, plus another $250 if they have any dependents. This would mean that a family with children could therefore receive a total of $750.
- Those individual filers who earn between $125,000 and $250,000 a year and couples who earn between $250,000 and $500,000 a year would receive $200 each. Meaning to say that a family with children in this bracket could receive a maximum of $600.
Unfortunately, those single taxpayers earning $250,000 or above and couples earning a combined $500,000 are ineligible for the payments.
Residents of the state who have filed their 2021 return by June 30 should have gotten a physical check for $750 by Sept. 30, thanks to the 1992 Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) Amendment. (Joint filers will get $1,500.)
As per a signed bill by Gov. Jared Polis last May, people are to get the refunds to taxpayers sooner. This will be more than half already cashed by late August. Those filers given an extension and filed by the Oct. 17 deadline will receive their refund by Jan. 31, 2023.
Upon the approval of the Delaware Relief Rebate Program by Gov. John Carney in April, a $300 stimulus check was cut for all residents who filed their 2020 tax returns.
Each person should have received a payment even if you filed jointly, which started going out in May.
60,000 Florida families already received their one-time payments of $450 per child. This is to offset the costs of rising inflation as stated by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Families must receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (also known as welfare) to qualify. Also, they need to be a foster parent or a relative or nonrelative caregiver or participate in the Guardianship Assistance Program.
The benefit will be automatically mailed to eligible recipients, this means that you didn’t need to apply for the benefit. The Florida Department of Children and Families stated the checks should have arrived in time for Florida’s “back to school” sales tax holiday, held from July 25 to Aug. 7.
In March, Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill authorizing rebates to taxpayers who filed their state returns for both 2020 and 2021. Those single taxpayers received $250 in May, with heads of households getting $375 and married couples filing jointly netting $500.
Those residents who pay little or no income taxes, or individuals who owe taxes, child support or other payments may have received a smaller rebate.
In May, the Department of Revenue started issuing rebates and in accordance with its website, most residents who filed their 2021 state return by April 18 should have received theirs by early August.
A One-time $300 tax rebate will be given this year for Hawaii residents who earned under $100,000 in 2021 or $200,000 if they filed jointly. A qualifying family of four could receive $1,200 since dependents are also eligible for the rebate
In February, Gov. Brad Little signed a bill giving $75 to each taxpayer and dependent, or 12% of their 2020 state income tax return, whichever is greater. In March, checks start going out and residents can review the status of their rebate online.
