As tax returns begin to pour in, the IRS provided last-minute clarity on Friday by announcing that the bulk of stimulus checks distributed by several states last year, including California, were not subject to federal taxes. 

The IRS said it won’t contest the taxability of payments connected to the general welfare and disasters a week after advising payment recipients to postpone filing returns. This means people who received those checks won’t be required to pay federal taxes on those payments. In all, the IRS reported that 21 states paid special payments in 2022.

“The IRS appreciates the patience of taxpayers, tax professionals, software companies and state tax administrators as the IRS and Treasury worked to resolve this unique and complex situation,” the IRS said Friday evening in a statement.

California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island are the states where taxpayers are not required to disclose relief cheques. 

According to the IRS, this also holds true for Alaska’s energy assistance payments, which were made in addition to the regular Permanent Fund Dividend.

Stimulus Checks 2023 in California: How Much They Would Receive

Meanwhile, CNET said millions of Californians got debit cards or direct deposits of up to $1,050 in inflation relief cheques. The state said Californians expected to receive the payment by January 15, 2023, which claimed that 95% of the payments were made by the end of 2022.

In addition, AS said that only a few Californians who have not yet received the Middle-Class Tax Rebate will do so. They may verify all the details and payment dates on the Middle-Class Tax Refund website.

The amount that Californians got depended on their family size, filing status, and income. 

  • Couples filing jointly who make less than $150,000 annually and single taxpayers making less than $75,000 annually are each eligible for a $350 tax credit, with an additional $350 if they have any dependents. Therefore, a married couple with kids may get as much as $1,050. 
  • Couples earning between $150,000 and $250,000 annually and single filers making between $75,000 and $125,000 annually were each to get $250, with an additional $250 if they had any dependents. Therefore, a family with kids may get a total of $700. 
  • Couples earning $500,000 or more yearly and single filers making between $125,000 and $250,000 were each to get $200. A family with kids in this category might get up to $600. 
  • Couples earning a combined $500,000 and single taxpayers earning $250,000 or more were not eligible for the payouts.

When To Receive Your Payment

If you’re a Californian who hasn’t received your payout, Kron4 suggests that you should verify that you are eligible for the Middle-Class Tax Refund.

Then, make sure your time slot is confirmed on the schedule as seen below. That will assist in figuring out if your payment is overdue or still expected. According to the Franchise Tax Board, debit cards may take up to two weeks to arrive while direct payments often come in 3 to 5 days.
