A huge stimulus check is on the horizon and will be hitting your account in a few months. 

The check is worth $850 and could be offered to Maine residents under a proposal by the governor.

If this check is approved, it could go out as soon as June.

Janet Mills wants to give back a part of the budget surplus to the residents in the form of $850 stimulus check payments, as per WGME.

There has now been a push to get these checks out faster by sending the amount electronically and not by paper checks.

The proposal does have bi-partisan support, even though some members of the legislature want to speed things up further by using direct deposit.

-Homeowner mortgage stimulus checks are to be received by millions of homeowners all across the country with up to $80,000 available for everyone. A federal program is providing billions of dollars to states to help their residents catch up with their late payments.

-Cherokee Nation has approved a special stimulus for its residents after the likelihood of a fourth stimulus check had dwindled. The Cherokee Nation announced over the summer that its citizens will receive two $1,000 stimulus checks over a two-year period.

This funding comes mainly from Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which gave states the freedom to spend their sums as they wish.

-The IRS sent the Letter 6419 which outlined the payments that you received. Any economic stimulus payments you received will also need to be listed on your return. The IRS sent Letter 6475 listing payments sent to you. As of March 4, 2022, the IRS had issued over $129billion in tax refunds to almost a 40million taxpayers. These 2021 tax year refunds were worth an average of $3,401.

– The average tax refund in 2021 was around $2,827 and was a 13.24% increase from the last year. There had been several changes since then regarding tax credits and deductions. There is a huge chance that you will not see the same tax refund that you received the previous year. Parents and guardians will need to list what advance child tax credit they received in 2021.

-The IRS is now accepting income tax returns.

If you file your return electronically, the IRS says your refund should be issued in less than three weeks, and faster when you choose direct deposit.

If you file a paper return, you can expect to wait between six and eight weeks for a refund to be issued.

Filing during the peak of tax season usually results in a longer wait time. So if you need your refund quickly, try to file as early as possible.

-You can also track your tax refund by checking the status at the Where’s My Refund page on the IRS website. However, the IRS only updates tax return statuses once a day during the week. This update occurs sometime between midnight and 6 am. It does not update the status more than once a day, so checking more than once throughout the day will not give you a different result.

-Stimulus on your tax returns might affect what you owe after you file your taxes. Several Americans had claimed new credits the previous year, such as the coronavirus stimulus check and child tax credits. The taxpayers are not obligated to pay this money back, but it counts as income and the IRS urges people to document all forms of income in one of America’s most confusing tax seasons.

The “Gas Stimulus Check”

According to the Newsom administration, a budget surplus of around $45billion is expected, which could go toward helping California residents. 

“There’s an urgent need right now with the high costs across the board, not just gas, but all of our daily living costs have increased. People need relief now,” said assembly Republican leader James Gallagher.

-An individual’s income will not stop them from receiving the rebate and a married couple could receive almost $800. Typically the Legislature and Governor Gavin Newson agree on the state budget in late June, but assembly member Cottie Petrie-Norris is calling for the money to be sent sooner.

– Lawmakers in California have called for a new stimulus check that gives a taxpayer a $400 tax rebate stimulus check, that is aimed to help them battle inflation. The rebate is not official but progress has been made to make it so. Every California resident who pays their state income tax would be able to receive the rebate.

-The Gas Rebate Act of 2022 was proposed by Representatives Mike Thompson (CA-05), John Larson (CT-01), and Lauren Underwood (IL-14), according to a statement on Thompson’s website. It would send Americans a monthly energy rebate of $100 for the rest of 2022 on any month when the national average gas prices exceed $4 a gallon. It would also send them $100 for each dependent.

– You must file a  tax return if you missed a payment. The tax deadline in April applied to applications for missed stimulus checks, valued at around $1,400/adult. This credit can be claimed by making a switch in your filing status and shuffling your kids around, all thanks to a tax loophole.

-The Social Security Administration looks at the cost of living and makes any necessary increases to Social Security benefits. This practice has been going on since the 1950s to offset inflation for people living on a fixed income.

The cost-of-living adjustment for 2022 increased to 5.9 percent, one of the biggest in history.

That means about a 70million Americans are receiving a monthly increase in their benefits in 2022.

-The group of Social Security claimants sent a letter to Congress last year, stating the cost-of-living adjustment, combined with inflation, will hit hard for many older Americans who are on a fixed income.

The proposal came after many seniors shared their hardships in the aftermath of the pandemic.

-Incorrect or reduced CTC payments:

If you did not receive any payments, there are a few things you can do.

Check With The IRS: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) set up an online portal for people to check if they’re eligible and/or enrolled.

Check your information: If your information is not up-to-date that could affect payments.

2020 Tax Return: If you filed tax returns for 2019 and 2020 and you have dependents, you should have been already receiving the monthly payments. If you missed the deadline to file, you will need to claim your full child tax credit when you file your taxes in early 2022.

If you still have questions on your advanced CTC payment, there’s limited live assistance due to the tax return backlog, delayed stimulus checks, and unemployment tax refunds.
