Millions of Americans are waiting for another stimulus check to be issued in 2022, but the chances of that happening is pretty low.
The last payment was sent to the people back in March 2021 and it has been over a year since the citizens received a financial boost from that type of stimulus check.
But while there may not be more federal stimulus checks on the horizon, there could be some cash headed your way at the state level. As of mid-May, nearly a dozen different states were preparing to send more cash payments to their residents.
And if you happen to live in one of these states, there could be more stimulus money headed your way in 2022.
States Offering Stimulus Checks To Its Residents
California has already issued two different state stimulus checks to residents who qualify, and now more financial help could be on the way. A recent proposal made by Governor Gavin Newsom would send prepaid debit cards worth $400 to the drivers in this state. The idea is to help offset the high cost that drivers are paying at the pump, as California residents in particular have been hit extremely hard by the rising gas prices.
Illinois residents may also get an additional stimulus check payment this year. Democratic lawmakers in this state recently proposed payments worth $100 per adult and $50 per child in each household.
Residents of Idaho will also be getting an extra cash boost via a rebate check based on their 2020 taxes.
Maine residents will soon be getting a state stimulus check to help with the rising costs of consumer goods due to inflation. These relief checks are worth a maximum of $850 and will be mailed to Maine residents who are eligible starting in June.
5: New Mexico
New Mexico residents may also be eligible to receive up to $500 this year via a one-time tax rebate.
Indiana residents will also be receiving another stimulus payment worth a maximum of $125 per single adult or $250 per married couple.
The state of Georgia will soon be issuing one-time tax refunds worth a maximum of $500 to residents who qualify. This money, which is being funded by a state budget surplus, is meant to help residents who are struggling due to inflation.
8: New Jersey
New Jersey may soon be sending out $500 stimulus checks to tens of thousands of low-income taxpayers who file their taxes using a tax identification number rather than a Social Security number.
The proposed payments would be worth up to $300 for individuals or up to $600 for married couples and would be issued via a tax refund later this year.
10: New York
New York is issuing a percentage-based property tax relief credit to low- to middle-income residents who qualify. This credit will be worth an average of nearly $970 for New York residents who live outside of New York City
Hawaii governor proposed a $100 refund that would be issued to all state taxpayers and their dependents. This tax refund was ultimately signed into law, but not before lawmakers increased the maximum to $300 per person for Hawaii taxpayers who earn less than $100,000 per year.
