It seems almost impossible now that any more federal stimulus checks for individuals are coming anymore. However, that does not mean there aren’t any coming at all. The White House has given states more than $200Bn in total. The states have been directed to spend that money to ensure the economic recovery continues after the disastrous coronavirus pandemic. As a result, some states have decided to create their own relief payments to finish distributing the amount.
The List Of States Issuing The Stimulus Checks
31st December has been given as the last day by which the money has to be distributed. While some states are already sending their stimulus checks, others are still in the planning process. The following list contains the latest developments.
California has been the only one so far to have sent relief checks using their budget. The state had reported a surplus in its budget due to the tax system. Residents whose AGI falls between $30k and $75k will be receiving $500 to $600. Families with children will get a bonus of $500.
In Maryland, all state and local taxes levied on benefits received due to unemployment have been excused. Additionally, stimulus checks worth $500 will be given to families. Individuals who were Earned IT Credit filers will be receiving $300.
In Florida, the majority of administrators and teachers were allocated stimulus checks worth $1000. However, it is still in the planning process. Similar payments to the teaching staff have been made in Georgia, Michigan, and Tennessee. In Texas, district employees will have a raise in their salary. The 4 districts where this has been confirmed are Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfile, and Denton. In Colorado, people receiving unemployment benefits in 2020 will be paid $375.
