Stimulus Check Update- States To Issue Payment In September

Stimulus Check

From the 12th of September, several qualifying taxpayers in Illinois have been receiving tax rebate stimulus check payments worth $50.

This sum could potentially increase to $100 if two individuals filed as a couple. Residents can also qualify for an additional property tax refund which would come up to a sum of $300. Incidentally, this is not the only state that has been issuing special tax refunds to fight the rate of inflation. Last Friday, the state of Hawaii also started sending out direct deposits of a one-time refund payment of $300 to those who have had an annual earning of less than $100,000 in 2021, and a sum of $100 for those who have been able to break the bank. 

The state of Colorado has seen stimulus check payments of $750 sent to the mailboxes since the previous month, which has primarily been the result of the efforts by the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights Amendment. According to the officials of the state, the number of payments should be done by the end of the month- and everyone should ideally be receiving one in their mailboxes.

Apart from Colorado, California has also been sending its citizens inflation relief checks, with married couples who have children receiving as much as $1,050. The payments, which have been trickling out of the $97 billion budget surplus that the state has, have been issued as direct deposits or even through debit cards. It has been estimated that the first payments of the latter variety would be sent in October. 

The amount of stimulus check payment a resident would receive has been based on their income, household size, as well as their status of tax-filing. It has been estimated that single taxpayers who would be earning less than a sum of $75,000 annually and couples who have filed their taxes jointly after making an annual sum of under $150,000 will be receiving a sum of $350 per taxpayer, and around $350 more if they have any dependent.

Therefore, any married couple with children would ideally be receiving a sum of $1,050. Individual filers who have an annual earning of between $75,000 and $125,000 per year, along with couples earning between $150,000 and $250,000, will be receiving a sum of $250. In the event of dependents, they would be receiving $250 extra. This means that a family with children would be receiving a total of $750. 

In Colorado, state residents who have already gone ahead and filed their tax returns for 2021 by the 30th of June would be receiving a stimulus check payment of $750 on the 30th of September, which would be a credit to the 1992 Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights Amendment. Back in May, Governor Jared Polis went on to sign a bill that would make it feasible for the taxpayers to receive their refunds sooner- with almost half of it already cashed by late August.

Filers who had also received an extension and also filed their taxes by the 17th of October deadline would be receiving their refund by the 31st of January, 2023. In Delaware, after Governor John Carney went ahead and approved the Delaware Relief Rebate Program in April, a stimulus payment of $300 was sent to all residents who had filed their tax returns for 2020. Here, anyone filing jointly would also receive their payments individually- with the payments having already been sent out from May. 

Stimulus Check Payments To Be Issued To Several States In September

In the state of Florida, close to 60,000 families have already received their one-time stimulus check payments worth $450 per child, which would be offsetting the costs of rising inflation, especially with a completely new school year approaching. This was communicated by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.

In order to qualify for the payment, families must receive the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, be foster parents, and even might have to participate in the Guardianship Assistance Program. One doesn’t need to apply for this benefit, as it would be automatically mailed to those who are eligible. According to the Florida Department of Children and Families, checks would have already arrived in time for the back-to-school sales tax holiday- which was from the 25th of July to the 7th of August. 

Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia had previously signed a bill in March which readily authorized stimulus check rebates to taxpayers who had filed their state returns for both 2020 and 2021. Most of the single taxpayers have already received a sum of $250 in May, with several heads of households receiving a sum of $375, while married couples received a stimulus check sum of $500.

It has been announced that partial-year residents- especially those who pay no or very little income taxes, or individuals who owe child support or some other form of taxes- would be receiving a far smaller rebate. According to the Department of Revenue, most residents who had already filed for their state return for 2021 by the 18th of April must have already received their payments by early August. 

In Hawaii, residents who had been earning a sum of $100,000 in 2021, would be receiving a stimulus check sum of $300. It has also been announced that dependents will also be eligible for the rebate. A qualifying family of four quite ideally receives a sum of $1,200.

Individuals who have been earning a sum of more than $100,000 and couples who have earned around $200,000 will be receiving a one-time stimulus check of around $100. According to the Governor of Hawaii, the direct deposits have already been sent out from the 9th of September. Residents who had initially received their original tax refund by check after the 31st of July will be receiving theirs later.
