According to the California FTB, you are eligible to receive the one-time tax refund if you:

– Filed a 2020 tax return by Oct. 15, 2021.

– Were a resident of California for six months or more during the 2020 tax year and will be a state resident on the date when the payment is issued.

– Met the required 2020 adjusted gross income (AGI) limits.

– Were not claimed as a dependent by someone else in the 2020 tax year.

Refund amounts are tiered into AGI income brackets, with bigger payments going to those who make less money.

Individuals with a 2020 adjusted gross income higher than $250,001 and joint filers with an AGI of $500,001 or higher do not qualify for the MCTR.
