Thousands of Americans are set to receive a stimulus payment from their state worth a total of $850 in June.
These checks will be sent directly to Maine residents to help offset the burdens caused by inflation.
Inflation rates are still over 8%, but they did drop a little from March to April this year.
Stimulus: File your state tax return for a stimulus worth up to $800 in this state
How do the stimulus payments in Maine work?
Governor Janet Mills proposed the plan as a result of the budget surplus for the state.
The bill was supported by both Democrats and Republicans.
Residents that want to see the stimulus payment have until Oct. 31, 2022 to submit their state tax return.
Qualifying for the stimulus payment
In order to get the payment, your state tax return must be submitted on time.
If you already filed a tax return then you do not need to worry.
You must be a full time resident in the state of Maine.
Your gross income cannot exceed $100,000 if you’re single, $150,000 if you’re head of household, or $200,000 if you file taxes jointly.
The stimulus refunds will be mailed starting in June and continue on a rolling basis as people submit their tax returns.
