Feb. 2022 Golden State Stimulus II checks
The deadline to file your taxes and receive a stimulus check from the state of California was Oct. 15, 2021.
If you requested an ITIN, you may be entitled to the second check.
The deadline was set so people would file their taxes in a timely fashion, giving the California Franchise Tax Board time to determine eligibility.
Will I get a fourth stimulus check?
If you requested an ITIN before Oct. 15 but did not get it in time, you will likely be able to get an extension.
Workers that do not have, or cannot get, a SSN may apply for an ITIN instead.
This allows for people to work in the state of California.
These specific individuals will have until Feb. 15, 2022 to file taxes and get their Golden State II Stimulus check.
