Relief Payments Will Be Sent Out

Here are the states that will send relief payments this month, according to a published article in 24/7 WALLST:
The Middle Class Tax Refund program is a part of California’s plan to combat inflation. Residents who meet the program’s requirements can receive a one-time payment of up to $1,050. In October, the state began distributing the relief payments via debit cards and direct transfers, and it will do so again this month.
A tax credit of $750 for single taxpayers and $1,500 for joint filers was passed by Colorado in May. The money would have been made in September to those who submitted their 2021 tax forms by June 30. Those who filed a request for an extension by October 17 will, nevertheless, get relief payments by January 31, 2023.

Income and property-related refunds are being sent separately by Illinois. Residents will get $50 as an income refund and $100 for each dependant up to three if their annual income in 2021 is under $200,000 (or $400,000 for couples).
