Congress has recently passed their $1.9 trillion relief package of COVID-19. This includes billions of dollars in inflationary relief stimulus check payments to millions of Americans. This bill is now signed into law, and most of the states has started receiving their stimulus check payments. However, there are 5 states that is set for the Internal Revenue Services to start sending out all the funds.
These 5 states in the equation are Idaho, New Jersey, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. Since the Internal Revenue Service is giving out stimulus checks on a “first-come, first-served” basis, these states will be at the end of the line.
Fortunately, the IRS has noted that this issue and is currently trying to speed up their process. The commissioner of IRS, Chuck Rettig said that they are working round the clock to ensure these payments as quickly as possible. He said that they are confident that these five states will start receiving their stimulus check payments in the near future.
Stimulus Check 2023 Amounts May Vary
The bill Congress has passed is calling for up to fourteen hundred dollars per person and double for every married couple. For families with children or any dependent, the amount goes up to another fourteen hundred dollars for each child. This is on top of the six hundred dollars checks that were given out in December.
Although a precise date when the stimulus check payments will reach the five states is not yet known, the IRS is still working hard to get the money out as quickly as possible. Residents of the five states can still check the status of their payments on the IRS website up to that point.
In the meantime, the five states are hoping that the stimulus money will arrive soon, as it will be a much-needed lifeline for many of their citizens.
