California will be sending its stimulus checks to 1,150,000 residents this week as stated by the Franchise Tax Board on the 22nd of October.
The Golden State Stimulus II checks were sent back in August and had been drawn from federal funds and the state’s surplus budget of $75.7billion.
Almost 2/3rd of the Californians are eligible for the stimulus check of $600 under both the Golden State Stimulus programs.
The Golden State Stimulus I is distributing payments of $600 to $1,200 to low-income residents who claim the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit. Those residents typically earn less than $30k annually. The extra $600 is for qualifying children or family dependents.
In the Golden State Stimulus II program, qualifying residents who earn less than $75k in adjusted gross income will get $600 and an additional $500 for dependents.
