The checks will start going out to qualifying residents in about two weeks. The expected date to receive payments is October 7.
Details surrounding the stimulus payments in California to help residents fight inflation
According to Marca, the payments are going out via the Franchise Tax Board in the state of California. The payments are set to go out through direct deposit. There will be different phases depending on how you got your other stimulus payments.
Those that filed their taxes in 2020 electronically that received a direct deposit refund will see this refund the same way. It is known as the Middle Class Tax Refund.
The first ones expected to receive payments are those that got the first round of Golden State Stimulus checks. Those who saw those payments first through direct deposit can expect their inflation refund on October 7.
Payments will be sent all the way through October 25. All other payments will be between October 28 and November 14. If you do not have the option of receiving it through direct deposit, you will see the payment through prepaid debit cards. The debit cards will be mailed between October 25 and December 10.
The final phase for sending inflation payments will be January 15, 2023. Around 90% of the payments are expected to be sent out in October, and 95% of people will see their payment before 2023. About 23 million residents will see stimulus checks.
