Over the following five months, most New Mexicans’ bank accounts will see a deposit of $500 to $1,500. The state government’s stimulus check comes after lawmakers in New Mexico authorized two different Stimulus Check packages this year, despite record oil income and growing living costs, notably high gas prices. Some of the funds come from a measure voted by parliamentarians in February 2022 during a normal legislative session. On April 5, 2022, lawmakers passed a second package after convening in Santa Fe for a one-day extraordinary legislative session.
A total of $1,000 will be awarded to heads of household, surviving spouses, and married couples submitting joint returns. Individual filers and married couples filing separate returns will each receive $500.
Stimulus Check Funds Will Be Split Into Two
Those funds will be split into two portions once again. “As soon as feasible,” the first payment is expected. The Act specifies that it must be delivered “no later than June 30, 2022.”
The initial payment will be $500 for joint filers. The initial payment for single filers will be $250.
In August, the second installment of the two-part rebate will be made. The amount you get depends on your filing status, just like the first payment. Individual filers will receive $250 and joint filers would receive $500. You can still obtain money from the state if you don’t make enough money to submit taxes. House Bill 2 fills in the gaps with a so-called “relief payment.”
Non-filers receive Stimulus Checks on a first-come, first-served basis. And they’re only going to endure till a $20 million fund runs out. The state will ask applicants to provide a social security number or an individual taxpayer identification number as confirmation of identity.
The relief payment will be the same amount as the refund in two parts. A $1,000 grant will be given to married couples or single people with one or more dependents. The payout is $500 for single-person households with no dependents.
