Stimulus Check from the federal government is most probably coming to an end. Unfortunately, there are no stimulus checks for dependents. If you’re a dependent and have a spouse or parent who is eligible for a check, then you can still get your share of the $300 – but it won’t be in the form of a check. Instead, the Treasury Department will send you an electronic deposit into your bank account.
However, if there are specific reasons why you don’t want to receive this money electronically (perhaps because your bank doesn’t support direct deposits), then contact the Treasury Department via their website or by calling 1-800-333-4636 and request that they send out paper checks instead.
The earliest possible date for a stimulus check to arrive is October 2022, and the latest possible date for a stimulus check is November 2022. Since there are 31 days in October and 31 days in November, these two months have double the number of days as any other month of the year. This means that there will be more checks arriving during these months than at any other time! Averaging it out across all 12 months of 2022, however, gives us an average arrival date range from October 1st through November 30th.
Stimulus Check: Will There Be Payments In October?
Odds are high that an October check will be issued. The odds of a stimulus check in October are better than they have been since April, when the current government shutdown began.
The odds of an October check do not mean you should start planning the party yet, however! The federal government might still decide not to issue checks this year, but those chances have decreased significantly since December and January.
If you’ve been hoping for a stimulus check, there is another option. You can get a stimulus check in the form of a tax rebate.
Tax rebates are issued by the IRS, and they’re given out at random. If you file your taxes when they’re due and are lucky enough to be selected, then you’ll receive a check from the IRS that covers any amount owed on your federal income taxes—and possibly even more than what’s owed! The exact amount depends on how much was withheld by your employer throughout the year.
