New $270 ‘family’ Stimulus Checks Sent Out In Oct For Millions

Officials in New York are sending out checks that contain either an Empire State child credit or an earned income tax credit.

Governor Kathy Hochul revealed that there are approximately 1.8 million people in the United States who are qualified to receive the relief payment.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance will send you an envelope with prepaid postage.

On the back of the envelope, you will find a set of instructions that explain how to open the envelope.

If an American got at least $100 from one or both payments during the 2021 tax year, they are eligible.

The minimum amount that can be issued on a check is $25, and it may contain either or both of the payments.

The Empire State child credit payment is anywhere from 25% to 100% of the amount of the credit you got for your 2021 taxes, depending on how much money you make.

Hochul said: "This program will put money back in the pockets of nearly 2 million New York families struggling with the pandemic, inflation, and other rising costs."

The check should come by October 31, but it could take longer if the government needs more information.
