Stimulus 2022 update: Are You Eligible for California’s $1,050 ‘Inflation Relief’ Payment?

Millions of Americans received Suprise money in the form of Plus up Payment

California has announced a one-time “middle-class tax refund” that will provide 23 million taxpayers with between $200 and $1,050.
California’s economy is the largest in the US. The inflation relief payments are a compromise between Gov. Gavin Newsom and state lawmakers.
Numerous states are working to bolster the local economy and offer residents relief from ongoing inflation with a tax rebate or stimulus payment.

This fall, California is sending one-time inflation-relief checks to residents: Through the Middle-Class Tax Refund, eligible families will receive a one-time payment of as much as $1,050, depending on their income, tax-filing status and household size.

Here’s what you need to know about California’s inflation relief checks, including who is eligible for the money, how much they’ll get and when they can expect to receive it.

The refund plan has been set up in three tiers, based on the adjusted gross income on your 2020 California state tax return.
Although single taxpayers who earned more than $250,000 and couples who made more than a combined $500,000 in 2020 aren’t eligible, the Middle Class Tax Refund is expected to benefit 23 million Californians in all.

You can estimate your payment on the Franchise Tax Board website.

In addition to meeting income requirements, residents must have filed their 2020 tax refund by Oct. 15, 2021, have lived in the state for at least half of the 2020 tax year and still be a California resident on the date the payment is issued. They also cannot have been claimed as dependents in the 2020 tax year.
The payments will start going out in October and finish in the middle of January 2023, according to estimates from the Franchise Tax Board. The money is coming out of California’s $97 billion budget surplus.

Most Californians who didn’t file a complete 2020 tax return by Oct. 15, 2021, aren’t eligible for the rebate. (The exception is for those who applied for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, or ITIN, and had not received it by Oct 15, 2021.)

In addition to the tax rebate, the state is increasing funding for several social programs, including the Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment, which assists more than 1 million seniors and disabled people. SSI/SSP benefits will increase by about $39 per month for individuals and by $100 per month for couples.

There are also increases to California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids, aka CalWORKS grants, which provide money and services to eligible families with children. Grant recipients could see their benefits increase as much as $194 a month, KCRA reported.
