Stimulus Payments Are Coming To These States In October

People in California, Hawaii, and Virginia will get their stimulus money back in October 2022 unless something unforeseen happens.

The State of California Franchise Tax Board says that people who qualify for the Middle Class Tax Refund (MCTR) has started getting checks from Oct. 7.


Direct deposit MCTR payments for Californians who received Golden State Stimulus (GSS) I or II are expected between October 7, 2022 and October 25, 2022

MCTR debit cards will be mailed Oct. 25-Dec. 10, 2022. 90% of direct deposits and 95% of reimbursements are expected by October 2022.

Married couples with more than one child who make less than $150,000 per year can get a rebate of up to $1,050.

Depending on how you file and your federally adjusted gross income, Hawaii's Act 115 Refund delivers $100 or $300.


If you filed your 2021 tax return between January 1 and July 31, 2022, the Department of Taxation should have already sent your direct deposit rebate.

Those due paper refund checks got them or will by October's end. Tax returns submitted after July will receive refund checks 10 to 12 weeks later.

Virginia residents must have had a tax liability for tax year 2021 in order to get a one-time tax rebate of $250 for single filers and $500 for joint filers in 2022.


If you filed tax by September 5 and were qualified, you should get your rebate by October 31. This refund is only available until November 1, 2022.
