Find out which states have announced stimulus payments for 2023
Short of another stimulus check, some states have chosen to offer their own form of financial assistance. Here are six states with aid projects for 2023.
In addition to the health crisis, the covid-19 pandemic brought with it economic problems, to which the US government responded by approving three stimulus checks with the aim of providing economic assistance to those most in need.
Although the pandemic has reached manageable levels, inflation continues to be high and many families continue to have difficulties with putting food on the table. This has prompted some states to offer their own help in the absence of a fourth federal stimulus check.
6 states with stimulus check projects for 2023: Which states and how much?
In-state residents can get a payment of $200 to $1,050, depending on their eligibility criteria, such as income, marital status, and number of dependents. The payment is made possible by the “Middle Class Tax Rebate,” which will be available to taxpayers who filed their 2020 tax return before October 15, 2021 and lived in California full-time for a minimum of six months in 2020. Payments will be issued in the first half of 2023.
The state government offers one-time payments of $75 for each family member, or the equivalent of 12% of the taxpayer’s tax liability. Note that the payments will arrive as a tax refund for taxpayers who filed their taxes on time.
