Which states are looking at more stimulus checks and how do you know if you qualify? Here’s the scoop on state-level stimulus efforts.
California, Colorado, Delaware, and Oregon will send out additional stimulus checks.
California residents are poised to receive inflation relief checks toward the end of 2022. Dubbed the Middle Class Tax Refund, qualifying individuals will receive a tax rebate worth up to $1,050. Residents earning up to $150,000 annually get the full amount while those earning up to $500,000 annually will earn a fraction of the total.
Colorado residents are gearing up for the Colorado Cash Back Bill starting Sept. 30, which provides up to $750 per individual at least 18 years of age by the end of 2021.
In Delaware, the Delaware Relief Rebate Program will provide $300 one-time payments to all adult residents of the state.
In Oregon, qualifying low-income residents already received one-time $600 checks by July 31. The checks went out to folks who received the Oregon Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) on 2020 taxes.
Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Hawaii will provide residents with extra stimulus relief.
Illinois residents will receive income tax rebate checks up to $50 or $100, plus another $100 per child (up to three children).
While Massachusetts lawmakers haven’t passed an official stimulus measure, they will still proceed with an excess tax refund totaling $2.5 billion, or 7 percent of residents’ 2021 state income tax payment.
New Jersey’s Middle Class Tax Rebate will provide checks up to $500 for individuals with at least one dependent listed on 2020 tax returns.
In Hawaii, residents will receive stimulus checks of $100 or $300, depending on if they make more or less than $100,000 per year.
Florida, Georgia, Idaho, and South Carolina will provide a variety of stimulus aid.
Floridians will receive $450 one-time stimulus checks for about 59,000 qualifying families (including caregivers, foster parents, and others involved in state assistance programs).
Georgia will dish out stimulus checks worth $250, $375, or $500 depending on living status (single or separated, head of household, and joint filers, respectively).
Idaho residents will receive a one-time tax rebate of the greater of $75 or 12 percent of 2020 state taxes.
South Carolina will shell out $800 in income tax rebates per individual by late 2022.
Indiana, Maine, New Mexico, and Virginia can also expect some financial stimulus.
Like Massachusetts, Indiana residents will receive a one-time tax refund courtesy of an excess reserves law. Most residents received their one-time $125 check in May and July.
Maine will pay a stimulus program that delivers checks for single tax filers worth $850 and joint filers worth $1,700 by late 2022 or early 2023.
Virginia residents will get $250 or $500 stimulus checks for single and married filers, respectively. Those with tax liabilities in 2021 are eligible.
