Early in the new year, millions of Americans will receive direct payments worth up to $1,050.
Direct payments have been offered by states all over the country, and some have already been distributed.
If not already, Americans will get them in the first quarter of 2023.
1. California: $1,050
In order to help Californians, the Middle-Class Tax Refund (MCTR) is a one-time payment.
Taxpayers who qualify will automatically receive the payment; no application was required.
Payments can be mailed in the form of a debit card or sent via direct deposit.
In October, the state began sending direct deposits that ranged from $200 to $1,050, and they will keep coming into the new year.
Between December 17, 2022, and January 14, 2023, debit cards will be mailed.
2. Illinois: $500
3,250 eligible recipients will receive $500 per month for two years through the Illinois program in Cook County.
Cook County households earning no more than 250 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible for assistance.
The minimum age to apply is 18, but the application deadline was October 21.
You should have received notification in November if you were chosen out of a pool of qualified applicants who were chosen at random in a lottery.
By January 2023, the first payment should be received.
3. Virginia: $500
In the Alexandria guaranteed income pilot, nearly 170 participants will receive $500 per month for two years as part of a UBI program, which is a set of recurring payments from the government to individuals.
This Virginia initiative will continue until December 2023.
According to city officials, the first check should be issued in the final week of January 2023.
4. Idaho: $300
By Thanksgiving, tax refund checks for Idaho residents who filed their taxes should have arrived.
Some residents of Idaho will have to wait until February 2023 to receive a check from an earlier round of tax rebates due to system limitations.
The rebates for single filers were $300, and for joint filers, they were $600.
Already, nearly 192,000 rebate checks have been sent out.
As part of a $1 billion package to reduce the state’s budget surplus, the rebate checks were approved in September.
“We can only issue about 60,000 rebates per day, so those that are issued via direct deposit are distributed first. We can only send 75,000 rebates per week via paper check “In the special session of the Idaho Legislature, Renee Eymann, public information officer for the Idaho State Tax Commission, made a statement.
