In October, as consumer prices continue to climb, millions of Californians who need assistance with inflation will get a one-time direct payment of up to $1,050.
A portion of California's Middle Class Tax Refund goes toward the relief payments. Beginning in October, stimulus checks will be distributed by direct deposit or debit cards. This summer, Sacramento legislators passed a $12 billion recovery program that included the payouts. A refund of almost $23 million is available to residents.
Californians to Receive $1,050 in October
Depending on the recipients' income and, if applicable, the number of dependents, direct payment amounts will change. Single filers making between $125,001 and $250,000 with no dependents will receive a payment of $200, and married filers making less than $150,000 and having a dependant would receive a stimulus payment of $1,050, as per Washington Examiner.
The stimulus check will be sent as a direct deposit to those who electronically filed their 2020 California state tax return and asked for a direct deposit of their refund. The payment will be made to others using a debit card.
Residents must have filed their 2020 tax refund by October 15, 2021, to be eligible for the Middle-Class Tax Refund. Those who applied for an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) but hadn't gotten one by October 15, 2021, are the one exception to this rule.
Additionally, taxpayers must have spent at least half of the 2020 tax year in California and be residents of the state on the date the payment is issued. Furthermore, they cannot have been claimed as a different person's dependent during the 2020 tax year, according to 247 Wallst.
Californians with incomes under $75,000 will receive $350 apiece, with an additional $350 if they have dependents. For couples, the income cap is $150,000. Each person making between $75,000 and $125,000 will receive $250, with an additional $250 if they have dependents.
Couples income between $250,000 and $500,000 will each receive $200, with an additional $200 if they have children residing in the home. A person earning between $125,000 and $250,000 will receive the same amount, as per Marca.

Even though the pandemic has mostly subsided (albeit not entirely), there is already discussion about whether the additional stimulus will be provided. Although it is quite unusual, if it does occur, we can anticipate it to originate from one of the states on this list, such as Maine or New Mexico, AOL reported.
