More about the stimulus relief checks for Idaho residents

According to The Sun, the relief payments were approved in September.

When they were approved Idaho allocated $1 billion dollars to reduce the state’s budget surplus and cut taxes.

Payments started going out Sept. 26 but are limited by system requirements.

This means there are limits to how many payments can go out at one time. Right now 60,000 relief payments per day are being sent.

In all only 75,000 paper checks can be mailed each week.

Most people should see their payments by Thanksgiving, but some will still need to wait.

800,000 checks worth $500 million will be sent by the end of March in 2023.

The later you receive your relief payment, the more likely you are to have filed your taxes late or have an issue with your taxes.

If your state tax return is still being processed and it was filed past the April deadline, you will probably be waiting for a little while.

Requirements and how do I get a relief payment?

Idaho residents that lived in the state for the years 2020 and 2021 will qualify.

They need to have filed a tax return or Form 24 for those years as well.

You have until Dec. 31 to file your 2021 tax return and see a payment.
