New Mexico

The Land of Enchantment refunded all taxpayers — $500 for individual filers and $1,000 for joint filers, heads of families, and surviving partners. The payments were split into two: The first checks went out in June, and the second in August.

The state also issued $250 rebates in July to taxpayers who filed individually and earned less than $75,000. (Married couples filing jointly with incomes under $150,000 received $500).


Maine taxpayers filing their 2021 state tax returns and having an adjusted gross income of less than $100,000 were eligible for an $850 direct relief payment this year. Couples filing jointly received a single charge of $1,700.

South Carolina

Income tax refund checks of up to $800 will be sent to South Carolina taxpayers starting in late November or December.

Any resident who paid taxes will receive a rebate, with the amount increasing based on their tax liability, up to an $800 cap per filing. According to The Center Square, it will be a full refund for those who paid $800 or less, which includes 33% of taxpayers.

The rebates are being issued per person, regardless of whether you filed individually or jointly. Those who did not pay income taxes — around 44% of South Carolina residents — will not receive a check.

Hoosiers are eligible for $125 rebates regardless of income, thanks to the state’s automatic taxpayer refund law,

Direct deposit payments started going out in May. Printed checks were slated to be sent to the 1.7 million taxpayers who didn’t provide banking information in July, but were held up until mid-August, Gov. Eric Holcomb told Fox 59, “because the paper supply required was delayed.”

The Indiana Legislature paid another $200 to each check during the wait.

The combined payments —  $325 for individuals or $650 for married couples filing jointly — will be included in one paper check. It will take the state until early October to print all 1.7 million paper checks.
