Rumors of a fourth stimulus for everyone are still around, and while it probably won’t happen, some states are still offering their own help.
Californians received money from Governor Gavin Newsom through a budget surplus. Golden State’s third round of stimulus checks are being sent out this month. California reports delays in delivering cash to 9 million eligible residents, citing printing and mailing issues.
Other states provide their own rescue versions. For example, Colorado residents who received an unemployment check between March and October got $ 375. In Maryland, stimulus payments of $ 300 for people who filed for the income tax credit and $ 500 for families who filed. New Mexico and New York are providing assistance to people, including undocumented workers, who have not received federal stimulus money.
The teachers also received thank you money. In Florida, checks for $ 1,000 were given to teachers and other first responders. Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan and Tennessee plan to give teachers $ 500 or $ 1,000 in bonuses by the end of the year.
Parents receive help paying for their children’s expenses through the advance payments of the Child Tax Credit. This stimulus offers a tax deduction commonly used before tax filing. Depending on the number of children in a family and their age, the amount of money sent changes. The fourth installment will be deposited on or around October 15th.
