Stimulus 2022: These 13 states are sending out tax rebates and stimulus checks this month

Several states are looking to provide financial relief to residents, coming in the form of inflation relief, one-time direct payments, or tax rebates. Here are 13 states that are sending out payments this month.


The Golden State will be sending out inflation checks to millions of residents beginning in October. Eligible residents will receive a payment based on their income, tax-filing status, and household size. Couples making less than $150,000 a year with children could see a stipend as much as $1,050, receiving $350 per taxpayer and an extra $350 for dependents.

Those in the $75,000 to $150,000 range for single filers ($150,000 to $200,000 for couples) could receive as much as $750, and individual filers making $125,000 to $250,000 ($250,000 to $500,000 for couples) could receive up to $600.

The payments are part of California's $97 million budget surplus and will arrive as a direct deposit or debit card.


Eligible Delawareans who filed 2020 tax returns are continuing to receive a $300 stimulus check, which began going out in May.

The payments come out of the 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program approved by Gov. John Carney.


Residents who earned under $100,000 ($200,000 for couples) are receiving a $300 tax rebate. Dependents also qualify for the rebate, meaning a four-person household could receive $1,200.

Individuals earning more than $100,000 annually will receive a smaller payment of $100. Direct deposits began two weeks ago on Sept. 9. Those who filed their original taxes by check or filed after July 31 will receive their payments later this year.


Each Idaho resident will receive $75 per person, including dependents, or 12% of their state income tax return, depending on which amount is larger.


Residents who filed their 2021 tax returns by June 30 will receive a paper check for $750 ($1,500 for couples) by Sept. 30 as part of the state's 1992 Taxpayer Bill of Rights Amendment.

With push from Gov. Jared Polis, more than half of the checks were already cashed by August.

Those who missed the June 30 deadline and file by Oct. 17 can expect the payments by the end of January next year.


Illinois families can receive up to $300 for a family of four, with single filers receiving $50 rebates and $100 per dependent, up to three.

The rebates are part of the state's $1.83 billion relief package, including income and property tax rebates. There is also a temporary cut in multiple sales taxes from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023.


The Hoosier State provided $125 rebates in the form of direct deposits in May. Printed checks, set to go out to 1.7 million taxpayers, were delayed due to a paper supply issue.

As a result, Indiana tacked on an additional $200 to each check and direct deposit. It will reportedly take the state until the beginning of October to print all of the necessary checks, to be distributed before Nov. 1.


Massachusetts is one of the few states that is not set on a rebate payment index. While the state's financial executive office confirmed taxpayers will get back $3 million in tax revenue, the finance secretary is unsure what the exact threshold will be for the refunds.

Previously, the administration stated the refund would be equal to approximately 13% of a state income tax liability, but the estimate will not be determined until late October.

Prior to these payments, the state sent $500 stimulus checks to low-income workers this spring.

New Jersey

New Jersey residents will see their payments come much later than most states. The payments, ranging from $450 to $1,500, are not expected to arrive until May 2023 by the latest.

The rebates are part of the state's $2 billion property tax relief program signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy in June. Over 2 million taxpayers are expected to receive a rebate.

New York

New York state homeowners have begun receiving property tax rebates of up to $1,050, averaging $425 per household, since June.

In late August, New York City Mayor Eric Adams signed a law authorizing payments of up to $150 to low- and middle-income homeowners.

Residents have until November to file a claim to see if they are eligible for the payments. If accepted, the payments should arrive in late fall.


The state's Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is providing relief to older homeowners, renters, and people with disabilities. The maximum rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates can increase the payment to $975.

Eligible recipients have until Dec. 31 to file an online or paper application to receive, potentially, a rebate.

South Carolina

South Carolina is also sending payments out later than most, with refund checks of up to $800 set to arrive in late November or December.

Any resident who filed taxes will receive a rebate based on their tax liability, with $800 as the maximum cap.



Millions of Virginia residents will receive one-time rebates worth $250, or $500 for joint filers, as a direct deposit or paper check by mid-October.

Virginia tax commissioner Craig Burns expects to issue 3.2 million rebates by the end of the year.
