California stimulus checks worth $1,100
The Golden State Stimulus II program was started in 2021 as a way to help state residents.
The program was modeled after the stimulus checks the federal government sent out to struggling Americans when the pandemic began.
There was a previous round of checks that went out to anyone that qualified and filed a 2020 tax return.
The second round of checks go to residents that filed their taxes for 2020 by Oct. 15, 2020, had an AGI of $1 to $75,000, wages under $75,000, resided in California for over half of 2020, reside in California when the payment is issued, and is not claimed as someone else’s dependent.
Payments have been being sent since Oct. and will continue into Jan. of 2022.
The final batch started going out Dec. 27 to residents with zip codes ending in 928-999.
