If you are one of those individuals waiting for a stimulus check payment in the state of California, you might not have to wait any further.
Although the state did send a lot of direct deposit payments from the 7th of October to the 25th of October, and debit cards were sent through mail on the 24th of October, there are still quite a lot of citizens in the state who have been waiting for their refund to be deposited back to the bank account. However, it must be stated that these individuals will not have to wait any longer. The state government has already initiated the second round of direct stimulus payments that are already being delivered from the 28th of October.
California To Issue Stimulus Check Payments
These one-time stimulus check payments issued by California have been referred to as Middle-Class Tax Refunds, and usually range between amounts of $200 to $1,050. This depends further on the income that has been reported on the tax return for 2020, along with the filing status for the very same.
One would also have to take into account whether the individual has dependents. If one is expecting payment through direct deposit, they should start checking their bank account every day. If it hasn’t arrived yet, and they know that they qualify for a direct deposit payment, they should find it highlighted in their account by the middle of November.
In order to qualify for this stimulus check payment, one has to file an income tax return for the state by the 15th of October, 2021. They also need to report an adjusted gross income on the tax return of $250,000 or less if they had filed had a single person. For those filing as a married couple, the sum stands at $500,000 or less. One also needs to be a citizen of California, for around six months- for the year 2020.
