Few states gave out stimulus for April 2023 and even later in the year. For example, Alaska and New Jersey are two places where taxpayers will soon get more than $1,000.

Stimulus for April in Alaska, Idaho, and Massachusetts

Through Permanent Fund Dividend program, Alaskans have been able to use a shared tax program that comes from oil mining for a long time. In 2023 stimulus for April, each person who is accepted will get a nice sum of money for $3,284. This amount is higher than usual because eligible people had to apply for an extra benefit to help with energy costs by March 31, 2022. Residents must live in the state and not have been in jail for the whole year of 2022 in order to be eligible. Those still waiting for stimulus for April 12th and whose status said “eligible-not-paid” will get their stimulus for April on or around 20th.

Most people who lived in Idaho and filed a tax return for 2021 got returns of $300 for single filers and $600 for joint filers in March and September of 2022. For those who haven’t gotten their second round of stimulus payments yet, the last wave of payouts went out on March 31, 2023. Those who were expecting a paper check should get it in April.

Massachusetts gave people who filed their taxes for 2021 a refund of about 14% of what they owed. If you filed your taxes for 2021 before October 17, 2022, you should already have your return. But anyone who files their 2021 tax return before September 15, 2023, will still get some money. Those who filed in March should be getting their money this month.

The Homestead Benefit program, which was set up to help homeowners and renters deal with rising property taxes, has been replaced by the ANCHOR Property Tax Relief program. To be eligible, applicants must have bought or rented their main home as of October 19, 2019, and either have paid New Jersey state income taxes or be exempt from them. This could be one of the few times renters get money to help them pay for rising living costs. Even though the application period is over, qualifying candidates will still get their money through May, either by check or direct deposit, and they won’t need to pay federal or state income tax on it.

This year, New Mexico taxpayers could also get an extra $500 or $1,000 if Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham waves her pen. House Bill 547, which was approved by the state House and Senate on March 18, would give New Mexico taxpayers who paid their taxes in 2021 a rebate. Residents of New Mexico who haven’t done their tax returns for 2021 can still get a one-time rebate of $500 for single filers and $1,000 for joint filers if they file their taxes by May 2023.

The state of Maine is sending payments of $450 to its people to help them pay for their winter heating costs. Even though it’s not exactly a stimulus check, about 880,000 people will get one of these checks. Most people should have gotten their money by the end of March 2023, but some will still be coming in until the middle of April. If you live in Maine and think you are qualified but don’t get money by June 30, you should check with the state tax office. Date checks will be sent out until September 30, 2023. Residents who were qualified did not have to fill out an application. The state tax office decided who was eligible.
