6 States to Send Out Payments This Month


While the federal government has not announced plans for a fourth round of stimulus checks, several US states will send more money to residents this month under various initiatives.

The three federal stimulus checks earned eligible Americans payments of $1,200, $600 and $1,400 in 2020 and 2021 as the U.S. grappled with the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the high costs of food, gas and other products and services continue to stretch the American wallet.

A full breakdown of which states send payments and who is eligible can be found below.


The Alaska budget signed by Governor Mike Dunleavy in June included $3,200 in payments, including a $650 one-time payment for energy relief and a $2,550 dividend from the Permanent Fund, which will be paid to Alaskans, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Dunleavy announced in July that the payments would arrive in bank accounts on September 20, according to Alaska Public Media. For those who have submitted paper applications or asked for paper checks, payments are expected to be sent about two weeks later.


Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed a bill in May this year providing for a $750 tax credit for individual filers and a $1500 discount for joint filers. According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, those who filed their income tax returns by June 30 will receive their checks by September 30.

For extended filers who meet the October 17 deadline, the refund will be received by January 31, 2023.

Hawaii Governor David Ige signed a bill in June that would provide one-time tax refunds to certain eligible residents of the state. Under Law 115, payments of $300 or $100 per person are sent based on factors such as income level and filing status. For example, single filers with federal adjusted gross income of less than $100,000 per year may receive a $300 rebate, while those earning more than $100,000 per year receive a $100 rebate.

A full breakdown of how much money state residents can expect based on their income and filing status, as well as other details, is available on the Act 115 information page. Hawaii’s Department of Taxation will begin issuing the payments in the first week of September. .


The state of Virginia also sends a one-time tax refund to some eligible residents. According to the Virginia Department of Taxation, those who owed taxes last year will receive up to $250 if they filed individually and up to $500 if they filed jointly.

Payments are expected to begin in late September, WJLA reported, but some may not receive theirs until next month. The Virginia Department of Taxation said those who qualify and submit before July 1 will have their rebates sent on October 17. This means that everyone should receive their payments before October 31.


Illinois will provide one-time income and property tax credits to residents issued the week of September 12.

For the income tax credits, a single filer receives $50, while a married couple filing jointly receives $100, according to the Illinois Department of Revenue. Those with dependents can receive a discount of up to $300, with $100 per dependent, up to a maximum of three.

Only those with adjusted gross income of less than $400,000 for joint submitters and less than $200,000 for single submitters are eligible for these discounts.

While refunds will begin the week of September 12, the Illinois Department of Revenue website has indicated that it will take several months to be issued.


Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed a law in late April that would allow Minnesotans who worked on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic and who meet certain criteria to apply for a bonus payment.

The application for Frontline Worker Pay was open until July 22. While the state has not yet announced how much each accepted applicant will receive, it has set aside $500 million, which will be divided equally among each member of the pool.

Those who qualify are expected to receive their money in September or October, CBS reports. Minnesota estimated that approximately 667,000 state residents would qualify, which would give about $750 to each accepted applicant.

But nearly 1.2 million Minnesotans ended up applying for the checks, KARE reported, meaning the payout could be lower depending on how many are approved.
