CALIFORNIANS receive two more rounds of pre-Christmas stimulus checks worth up to $ 1,100 each.
The final batch of checks is part of the Golden State Stimulus II program.
On November 29, the state will begin sending out more paper checks, which will be followed by another batch on December 13.
The tax administration said those who receive a paper check should expect it to take up to three weeks once they are mailed.
You must have $ 1 to $ 75,000 in California Adjusted Gross Income (CA AGI) to be eligible.
The income portion of CA AGI includes salaries and self-employment income, tips, interest, dividends, rental income, retirement income, and gains on the sale of a property.
If Social Security is your only form of income, you will not receive payment.
Some people who receive income from Social Security may be eligible because they receive other income listed above.
You must also be an eligible California resident and have filed your 2020 taxes by October 15, 2021.
At least nine million people will receive a stimulus check from the state before the end of 2021.
When will I receive my check?
Payments will be made by the last three digits of the zip code on your 2020 tax return.
Some payments may take longer to process for reasons of accuracy and completeness.
If your tax return is processed on or after your postal code payment date, allow up to 60 days after your return is processed.
Here are the remaining postal codes in which checks have not yet been mailed:
- ending with 585-719: from November 29, 2021 to December 17, 2021
- ending with 720-927: December 13, 2021 to December 31, 2021
- ending with 928-999: from December 27, 2021 to January 11, 2022
Most direct deposit stimulus payments were issued between September 1, 2021 and October 31, 2021.
If you filed your tax return after September 1, 2021, allow up to 45 days after processing your return.
What if I owe money?
The California Franchise Tax Board states that Golden State stimulus payments are not likely to be offset against debts owed to the Franchise Tax Board or other government agencies.
The only exceptions are orders for child support, spousal support, family support, or criminal restitution payable to victims.
If you believe that your Golden State Stimulus payment that was deposited with your financial institution has been mistakenly withdrawn or frozen, you should contact your financial institution.
Keep in mind that the Golden State Stimulus is not the same as the federal stimulus payment from the IRS.
