State-by-state variations in stimulus checks include one-time payments, tax credits, tax refunds, and the suspension of gas taxes.

Inflation inched up 9.1 percent in June from a year earlier, maintaining a pricey trend that has been hard on households. Prices for housing, food, and gas have been particularly high, but it seems like motorists are finally finding some relief at the pump.

Many states, including Florida, are funding economic stimulus checks and programs using leftover money from federal COVID-19 aid packages. Residents may wait a few months for the relief because the initiatives are frequently incorporated into state budget plans.

Residents In 14 states Are Receiving Stimulus Checks

Californians who meet the requirements will be given relief checks up to $1,050, according to a statement made by Governor Gavin Newsom last month. Depending on filing status and income, the payments change. If a filer has at least one dependent, they are given an additional payment; however, they are not given more money for each new dependent. For instance, a single parent with one child who makes less than $75,000 would receive $700, whether they have one child or three. In addition, the state is waiving the diesel fuel sales tax and giving aid to those who owe rent or utility payments that are past due.

Taxpayers in Colorado will receive one-time rebates totaling $1,500 for joint filers and $750 for single filers. According to Gov. Jared Polis’s office, citizens who submitted state tax returns can anticipate reimbursements under the so-called Colorado Cashback tax rebate before September 30, 2022, while those who requested an extension would receive the refund by January 31, 2023. Checks for the payments will be sent to the addresses of each taxpayer’s 2021 tax returns.

In May of this year, Delaware started giving each adult resident a $300 stimulus check. Adults who submitted 2021 state tax forms as well as other individuals who might not have done so, as determined by state agencies, will continue to receive payouts throughout the summer. Here, residents can keep track of their payments.

Each eligible child, including foster and adopted children, will receive a one-time stimulus check totaling $450 from around 60,000 low-income families. The Florida Department of Children and Families informed Fortune last week that the funds had already been mailed. May saw the start of Georgia’s one-time relief payments, which could be worth up to $250 for single filers, $500 for joint filers, and $375 for head-of-household registrants.
