Nine direct payments and relief checks and worth up to $1,700 going out in August

Stimulus check Which families are eligible to receive $1,400 in 2022

AS inflation remains high, millions of Americans can expect to see some relief this August.
States across the nation have been offering residents financial assistance in the form of checks or direct payments.
Most recently, states like Connecticut, Indiana, and Pennsylvania have all offered one-time payments.
Some states have used their surplus while others are offering the payments as a tax rebate.
Additionally, 17 states have offered tax holidays where the state temporarily suspends state and local sales taxes paid by consumers for items like school supplies, gas, or food.
Below are the following states sending out checks or direct payments in August.
Eligible Chicago, Illinois residents can apply each month for transit and gas card funds.
The deadline to apply for the next $150 is August 1.
To apply, you must be a Chicago resident, at least 18 years old and have a current and valid city sticker with the correct mailing information for your vehicle.
Also, your income must be at or below 100% of the area median income for Chicago.
This is $93,200 for a household of four.
Each month until September, there will be a lottery held on the second week of the month.
Those selected will be notified via email.
Under the program, Chicago will issue up to 50,000 prepaid gas cards of $150 and 100,000 prepaid transit cards of $50.
Cards will be distributed each month.
You can apply online, at any Chicago public library location, or by sending a letter via mail.
While the deadline for Coloradoans to file a return and receive their refunds over the summer has passed, they can still claim the money – but will be in for a longer wait.
This applies as long as you file an extension by October 17.
Those who filed their taxes by June 30 are in line to get their refund checks in late August.
If you file after then, you can expect to get your money in January.
The rebates are worth $750 for individuals, while the amount for joint filers is $1,500.
Around 3.1million residents are in line to get money, according to Governor Jared Polis.
In April, Delaware lawmakers agreed to send $300 to any residents who filed a tax return in the state in 2020 or 2021.
While the state hoped to send all of them out in May, the Delaware Department of Finance (DOF) said that many taxpayers have been left out.
As many as 150,000 Delawareans may still be waiting on the $300 rebate, finance secretary Rick Geisenberger told Delaware Public Media.
It would mean that nearly 20% of taxpayers who qualified for the rebate have not yet gotten it.
“We are working with numerous other state agencies […] to identify other people in this state where we have Social Security number information, and cross-reference that against people we’ve already sent checks to,” Mr Geisenberger said.
He added that the department hopes to send another 50,000 to 100,000 checks between now and October.
Checks will be automatically sent to nearly 60,000 eligible Florida residents.
To qualify for the one-time payment of $450 residents must meet the following requirements:
Checks should arrive between July 25 to August 7, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Thousands of Hawaii residents are set to get a one-time tax refund next month.
Those making less than $100,000 annually will receive a $300 rebate.
If it’s over that threshold but under $200,000, then you’ll get $100.
Additionally, families with children could get more money.
For example, a family of four could get $1,200.
According to Hawaii’s Department of Taxation, the refunds are expected to start going out during the last week of August.
Those getting paper checks need to wait three to four weeks longer for the money to arrive.
Maine has been sending out rebate checks worth $850 per individual and $1,700 for the average family.
In June, Maine mailed up to 200,000 rebate checks each week.
That would mean most payments would be issued by the end of last month.
However, some will take some time to hit mailboxes.
Governor Janet Mills’ office said that checks will continue to go out on a rolling basis through the end of 2022.
To qualify for a rebate check, you must meet a few requirements.
As far as income goes, an individual must not exceed $100,000, while heads of the household and couples can make up to $150,000 and $200,000, respectively.
These will be based on 2021 tax returns, which must be filed by October 31.
In New Mexico, hundreds of thousands of residents are starting to get their second round of tax rebates.
The rebates, which are worth $250 for singles and $500 for married couples or those filing as heads of households, are going out automatically qualifying taxpayers who filed a 2021 Personal Income Tax (PIT) return.
To be eligible, you must meet the specific income guidelines, which are as follows.
The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department first said paper checks will begin to be processed and mailed in July.
However, it warned that it has limited capacity in how many checks they can print per day, so the process could take up to a month to complete, according to local news outlet KOAT.
And then there’s one final round of payments set to be disbursed in August.
Direct deposit payments for Pennsylvania’s property tax rebate program started going out on July 1.
Beneficiaries of the program include the following:
The maximum standard rebate is $650, but some homeowners may qualify for supplemental rebates of up to $975.
Renters and homeowners who make $8,000 or less will get a $650 rebate.
Those making $8,001 to $15,000 will get $500.
The rest of the rebates per income range is as follows:
If you haven’t claimed yet, you can apply online until the end of the year.
Connecticut approved child tax credits of $250 per child in a household, with a maximum credit of $750, but families must apply by Sunday, July 31.
To apply, applicants should visit the Department of Revenue Services online portal and click on the “2022 CT Child Tax Rebate”.
Connecticut residents can also reach out to United Way for assistance applying for the credit.
The following income guidelines must be met to qualify for the credit:
The rebate will be reduced by 10% for every $1,000 a household earned over those thresholds, according to the state.
Any Connecticut parent who claimed at least one child, 18 or younger, on their 2021 taxes can get the child tax credit.
You can find more information on the child tax credit program from the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services.
