A number of American states are gearing up to help their citizens struggling with rising costs with relief payments.

The below states will dispatch stimulus checks to their residents this month.


Citizens who earned less than $200,000 last year will get a $50 income tax rebate. Meanwhile, those filing jointly and earning under $200,000 will get a $100 tax rebate.

Filers can also claim up to $100 per dependent for up to three dependents. So a family of four could earn up to $300 based on that provision alone.

The Illinois Department of Revenue told CNET that bills were anticipated to start being distributed. Distribution continues throughout October and will finish approximately eight weeks later.


In May, Delaware began sending “relief rebate” payments of $300 to taxpayers who filed a return in 2020 due to a budget surplus.

Most Delaware locals received these payments in May, and couples filing jointly can get $300 each. The state government is continuing to send these payments out throughout the fall.

Beginning in May, Indiana started to send $125 payments to all residents regardless of income. According to The Indianapolis Star, this is part of the state’s automatic taxpayer refund law.


Starting in October, millions of middle-class Californians will receive checks of up to $1,050 either by direct deposit or by mail in the form of a debit card.

The state expects 95% of the payments to be disbursed before the end of the year, with the remainder reportedly being sent out by January 15, 2023.


Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation to give out rebate payments of $250 for single filers, $375 for heads of household, and $500 for those filing together.

This stimulus package also came from a budget surplus in the state.

The Georgia Department of Revenue has been giving out these rebates since May, but the agency has been anticipating delays due to the number of refunds.

According to the department website, most people should have received their refunds by early August for all their tax returns if they were filed by April 18 this year.


Hawaiians who earned less than $100,000 in 2021 or $200,000 if they filed jointly can receive a $300 tax rebate. A family of four, if they qualify, could receive up to $1,200.

Those who earned more than the income limits will receive a one-time payout of $100.

Although direct deposits began being issued on September 9, paper checks will likely not go out until later this month, according to CNET.

Printed checks were planned to be sent to 1.7 million taxpayers who did not provide banking information to the state starting in July. However, Gov. Eric Holcomb told Fox 59 that those checks were delayed until mid-August “because the paper supply required was delayed.”

Meanwhile, the Indiana legislature added $200 to each check.

The state will reportedly have the checks printed by this month. Still, Indiana residents who have not received a rebate by November 1 are encouraged to contact the state’s Department of Revenue.


According to the Virginia Department of Taxation, several Virginians are expected to receive one-time tax rebates by mid-October.

According to the state’s taxation department, eligible individual filers should receive rebates of $250, while eligible joint filers should expect repayments of $500.

The agency expected 2.9 million rebates would be disbursed by October 11, with the remainder slowly dispersed through the rest of 2022 for returns filed by November 1.

Eligible state residents, who filed their taxes by July 1, should get a rebate by October 31.
