On Nov. 1 750,000 checks were mailed out to California residents while another 400,000 electronic payments were completed on Oct. 29.
The total of all of these payments combined is over $857 million, according to the California Franchise Tax Board.
Residents that qualify can expect checks worth $600 and an additional $500 for every qualifying dependent.
To qualify, you must be a resident of California that filed an income tax return for 2020 by Oct. 15, 2021.
You need to have made $75,000 or less in 2020 as well as have a social security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.
You may not be claimed as a dependent by somebody else who pays taxes.
It may take several days for direct deposits to go through.
Paper checks are a bit more complicated, and will be sent based on the last three numbers of the taxpayer’s zip code used on their return in 2020.
If your return is processed after the date of your zip code disbursement, it may take up to 60 days to process.
The checks are being sent staggered through the beginning of 2022.
Nine million California State residents will be getting a check.
At the current moment, checks are going to those who filed with zip codes ending in 000-375.
376-927 will be sent between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31. 928-999 will be sent between Dec. 27 and Jan. 11.
It is suggested to give the check around three weeks to arrive after it’s mailed.
