Stimulus Check News: Massachusetts Announces $500 Tax Rebate Checks

On Thursday, lawmakers in the Massachusetts Legislature announced plans to distribute 500 & 250 dollar stimulus checks to individuals throughout the state as part of a new stimulus package.

Members of the Massachusetts legislature, including Ronald Mariano and President Karen Spilka, said in a joint statement that they will distribute cheques to constituents depending on their income brackets. Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation estimates that the state had a surplus of $3.6 billion in the previous fiscal year, which is where the money will come from.

As it was reported that people all around the state were waiting for aid from the govt, this is a welcome development. Residents told WWLP that the state should continue its stimulus checks and the min wage to be raised to account for rising utilities and food prices.

Stimulus Check: Are You Eligible?

The proposal provides for a one-time 250 dollars payment to qualifying individuals who file as single taxpayers, and a $500 payment to qualifying couples who file jointly.

People must have had an annual income of between $38,000 and $100k in 2021 to get these rewards. No married couple or individual taxpayer with an income of more than 150,000 dollars will be eligible for the stimulus check payment.

With the min. income threshold in place, only individuals who have paid enough in taxes to the state will be eligible for a refund.

You should get the payout by September 30 if you are qualified, which the government would know after reviewing your tax return.
