In order to qualify for the rebate check:

  • income must not exceed
    • $100,000 for individual taxpayers
    • $150,000 for head of household
    • $200,000 for joint filers
  • cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return

The rebate is based onĀ  2021 tax returns, which must be filed by October 31. About 858,000 Maine residents qualify for the rebate.

When you’ll get the check, depends on when it was issued. But, you can track your refund here.
