The state-wide relief stimulus check program will see payments worth $850 per person sent out to Maine residents from June onwards.

Price rises have caused significant financial problems for millions of households all across the United States, and lawmakers in Maine have recently passed a state-funded relief program that will send out stimulus check payments worth $850 per person.

Gov. Janet Mills approved the proposal which is designed to help residents deal with the “increased costs as a result of pandemic-driven inflation, ranging from higher energy costs to increased prices of everyday goods.”

The $850 Maine relief payments are available for residents who already receive some form of financial aid or who get Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), provided they satisfy the eligibility criteria.

Who Is Eligible To Claim The $850 Maine Stimulus Check?

It is estimated that around 858,000 Maine residents are eligible to receive the $850 support payment. To trigger the payment they simply have to file a Maine individual income tax return for 2021, as a full-time resident, by 31 October 2022.

The claimant must be a filer, rather than a dependent on someone else’s tax return, and must have an adjusted gross income that falls below the upper threshold:

– $100,000, for individual filers

– $150,000, for the head of household filers

– $200,000, for couples filing jointly

You do not have to have paid a certain amount of tax to be eligible for the payment, and you can receive the support even if you have an unpaid tax bill owed to the state.

However, people who are not usually required to file a tax return will have to do so to trigger a payment. If you’re not sure how to submit a 2021 Maine individual income tax filing, head over to Cash Maine for support.
