Residents of Maine can soon expect their stimulus check worth $850, which will be sent to 800,000 residents by June.
The goal is to offset expenses like food, gas, and groceries for residents of Maine.
Check the status of your stimulus payment
The state launched a Relief Check website to help people understand the stimulus payment.
Basic questions are answered in the website’s portal, like why the checks are being sent and if you may be eligible.
In total, over half the budget surplus is going out to Maine residents in the form of a stimulus check.
The website will also offer resources for filing taxes, finding financial support, and getting the $850 check.
Eligibility for the stimulus check
If you’re single your income cannot exceed $100,000.
Married couples cannot exceed a yearly income of $200,000.
In order to get the check, you must file your state income tax return by Oct. 31, 2022.
