The federal administration is preoccupied with the infrastructure bill and any chance of a stimulus check appears to be on hold. But the state administrations have come up with their checks, with the help of federal funds.
The only federal check is the monthly installment of the Child Tax Credit advance check that arrives on the 15th of every month. The last stimulus payment will be in December. The final payment will complete half the payment under this scheme. The rest 50% will be given against the income tax returns in 2022.
