States require individuals to complete their taxes in order to receive stimulus checks.

After three rounds of stimulus checks were approved for COVID-19 pandemic relief, no more federal checks are coming in the near future. You may be wondering if any states are giving stimulus checks in November or beyond.

Obviously, sky-high inflation has impacted Americans’ financial well-being, so any potential relief is welcomed. The delivery dates of state payments like tax rebates vary depending on the state and when you filed a tax return.

According to Kiplinger, a total of 20 states either have already sent some form of rebate check or stimulus payment or are in the process of doing so.

Other benefits besides tax rebates issued by states include temporary gas tax holidays (and President Joe Biden called for a federal gas tax holiday) and temporary suspension of grocery taxes.

And millions may qualify for November stimulus checks through EITC and others.

Those not in that first group should see their payment directly deposited between Oct. 28 and Nov. 14. Others will receive debit cards over the next few months.
