With state support the only hope for many Americans, some states continue to send out stimulus checks to help residents tide over the economic emergency triggered by the pandemic. The inflation has further aggravated the situation, and even smaller stimulus check amounts have meant a world of difference to many.
Alabama is one state that is sending out stimulus checks to residents. Close to 2 million residents are slated to receive the payments. The state legislators have finally agreed to an amount after changing the figures twice in recent months. They have finally agreed to a $300 figure.
Governor Ivey has spoken of the strong commitment and the fiscal discipline that has enabled the state administration to come up with another kind of relief check for its residents. The $300 stimulus check from the Alabama government will not go to every resident. The payments are linked to the filing status of Alabama residents for the tax year 2021.
For those filing jointly, the stimulus check amount is $300 in tax rebates. For those who are filing as single filers, or are head of family, or are married but have separate files, the amount comes to $150 per filer.
Not Qualifying For The Alabama Stimulus Check
Residents who have failed to file their income tax returns for the state of Alabama for the 2021 tax year will be out of the list for the 2023 state tax rebate stimulus check. Further, trusts and estates do not come within the ambit of this round of Alabama stimulus checks.
Further, you are not in line for this round of state rebates if you have already been claimed as a dependent on the state or federal income tax returns for 2021. The payments are expected to reach residents by December 1 if they have linked their bank accounts to the state income tax office. People who receive their payments by mail will have it delayed by around 2 weeks.
