Federal v State: What’s the Status of Another Stimulus Check?

Will a 4th Stimulus Check Come From The Federal Or State Government?

(RepublicanNews.org) – During the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government issued three rounds of stimulus checks or economic impact payments. While the economy is slowly rebounding from the pandemic shutdowns, many Americans are wondering if they will be receiving a fourth check this year.

Unfortunately, Congress has made it clear that they will not be issuing a national check any time soon, but some states are taking it upon themselves to help out their residents. Read on to find out more about these refunds and whether your state is participating.

Hawaii

Hawaiian residents will be receiving a tax rebate of up to $300 if they are earning less than $100,000 per year. If they earn over that amount, they can still receive $100.

Idaho

Governor Brad Little approved legislation that will give over 800,000 rebates to Idaho residents who filed their 2020-21 tax and grocery-credit refund. Eligible recipients will receive either % of their state taxes or $75, whichever is more. These refunds will mostly be issued via direct deposit, though those without access to direct deposit can still receive their refunds via check.

New Mexico

New Mexican residents will receive multiple tax rebates. Those earning $75,000 or less annually can receive up to $750 in rebates. These payments will be added to eligible residents’ tax refunds.

Colorado

Coloradan taxpayers can look forward to a minimum of $400 later this year. If you filed your 2021 tax return by June 30, you will begin receiving the refunds in September.

Indiana

Residents who filed their 2021 taxes will receive a one-time payment of $125. Married couples who jointly filed will receive $250. These refunds will be issued via direct deposit where possible. Otherwise, checks will be issued later this summer.

Minnesota

First-responders and Frontline workers will receive a one-time payment of $750. To be eligible, workers must apply to the Minnesota Front-line Worker Pay Program by July 22.

Georgia

After historic budget surpluses, Governor Brian Kemp is issuing tax rebates to eligible citizens. Taxpayers who filed for 2020-21 can receive $250 for single filers, $375 for head of household, and $500 for married couples who filed jointly. Residents who only live in the state part-time will likely receive prorated rebates.

Delaware

Beginning in May, Delaware issued $300 relief payments to eligible residents. You should have received this payment if you filed your 2020 tax refund. If you have not, you can check the Delaware Department of Finance’s website to find out the status of your payment.

New Jersey

On June 15, Governor Phil Murphy announced a $2 billion tax relief program for 2023. This program, known as the Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters (ANCHOR), will provide the following benefits:

  • Households making $150,000- $250,000 will receive $1,000 per year in tax credits.
  • Households making less than $150,000 will receive $1,500 per year in tax credits.
  • Renters making less than $150,000 will receive $450 per year in tax credits.

Maine

Residents of Maine will receive up to $850 in direct relief payments if they make less than $100,000 or $150,000 as head of household. Couples who file jointly can make up to $200,000 and will receive $1,700.

Even if you do not usually file, if you submit your return by October 31, 2022, you can still qualify for this payment.

While the federal government is not releasing funds any time soon, that is not stopping these states from supporting their residents in the wake of the pandemic. Even better, several states are in the planning stages of rebate programs. If your state is not on this list, check back frequently to see if it has been added.
