California residents who received a Prop 30 tax hike in 2020 are receiving checks this week to reflect the money owed by first homeowners. The checks will arrive on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday among eligible households.
A check is a written order for payment of money, drawn on a bank and payable to the bearer. The check’s amount must be specified, it must be signed by the person who prepares it (the payer), and then it must be cashed or deposited by the recipient. Checks are used in place of cash payments when there is no counterparty risk associated with the transaction—for example between two banks or as part of a tax refund.
A direct deposit occurs when funds are transferred electronically from an employer to an employee’s bank account without first being deposited into an intermediary financial institution such as a brokerage or credit union. The advantage to employers and employees alike is that they avoid having their funds held in transit during payroll processing, which can take several days at traditional brick-and-mortar banks or even weeks if sent via mail directly from employer to employee—or longer still if there’s some kind of fraud involved!
The checks will be distributed over the next few days and should arrive by the end of this month. If you want to receive your payment, it’s best to check with your bank or credit union.

You may need to open up a new account if you don’t already have one. That way, when you get your check, it can be deposited directly into that account and not go missing in transit or get lost in another financial institution’s system.

esidents of California will receive checks from the state government in the coming days, as Governor Jerry Brown announced that under a new law passed last year, more than two million households will be getting their share of nearly $1 billion.
The payments are part of a program that began after voters approved Proposition 30 in 2012, which increased taxes on wealthy people to fund public education and other public services while also providing relief for those who were struggling financially after the recession. The legislature has budgeted this money annually since then through 2020.
