How To Ensure Your $1000 Minnesota Stimulus Check

The Democratic Farm Labor Party (DFL) of Minnesota achieved the rare trifecta during the 2022 midterm elections last fall: Gov. Tim Walz was reelected, and the DFL maintained its Minnesota House majority. Furthermore, the DFL won the majority numbers in the Senate of the state as well. Can this mean another stimulus check in some form for the residents of the state?

An Unprecedented Political And Stimulus Check Scenario For Minnesota

However, in the history of the Land of 10,000 Lakes, that hasn’t occurred in about a decade. The last time every single chamber of the state legislature of Minnesota was controlled by a single party (again, the DFL) was in 2013, which may be found in that year. However, might it mean an extra $1,000 check for the majority of Minnesotans?

It is much simpler for policies and bills to become law when a single party controls all three branches of Minnesota’s state legislature because the opposition (in this case, Minnesota’s Republican Party) lacks the necessary number of votes to either block the proposal or force the DLF to make compromises in order to pass legislation.

Depending on your political views, you can decide whether or not that is a good thing, but it may indicate that Minnesotans will soon receive one more stimulus check deposited into our accounts. The Legislature of 2022 adjourned after failing to reach any agreement regarding the expenditure of Minnesota’s sizable budget surplus following Gov. Tim Walz first proposed rebate payments last year.

Political analysts from all throughout the state were interested to see if the governor’s proposed budget for 2024–2025 would still include such rebate checks or stimulus checks. After working with the Associated Press, the following is how the system is going to work.

If you are a Minnesota single filer and earn up to $75,000 annually, you may be qualified for a rebate stimulus check worth $1,000.  Families in Minnesota making up to $150,000 annually would qualify for a rebate check worth $2,000 and a potential additional $200 per dependant, up to $600. Therefore, if you have 3 children, your family may receive a $2,600 refund check.
