As American citizens are trying their level best to cope with the increased cost of living, several states in America have started issuing stimulus checks this month.
Even though the inflation rates have been continuously coming down from 9.1% to 8.3%, the majority of the middle-income group in America are complaining of their struggles to make ends meet. Their income is not sufficient to cover their inflated cost of living.
Stimulus Check For Relief
More than 23 million residents of California are expected to receive financial relief from the state by way of tax rebates in the upcoming months.
Depending on the income of the residents of California, the refunds are estimated to be between 200-1050 dollars and will be credited to the residents who are currently or were previously residing in the state of California when the checks are to be issued.

The first tax refund will be credited from 7 October and will be issued to their account between 7 October and 25 October. The balance of direct deposits will be between 28 October and 14 November.
