Behind the Scenes

California residents can see how much they qualify for by using this "middle-class tax refund calculator."

The checks are designed as tax refunds, and stem from the state's record-setting $97 billion budget surplus.

Couples who earn above $500,000 and single taxpayers who earn above $250,000 aren't eligible for the payments

Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday signed a $308 billion state budget that includes the payments.
