MORE than half a million New Mexico taxpayers should expect to receive cash relief from the state soon.
New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced that payments from the state tax rebate program began to go out this week.
Individual taxpayers will receive $ 250, while married couples applying jointly and heads of households will receive $ 500.
Payments are on track for more than 550,000 new Mexicans, according to the governor’s office.
Taxpayers who included direct deposit information on their tax returns will get the funds almost immediately.
An additional 200,000 paper checks will be sent out in the coming days and weeks.
“As of today and over the summer, we are putting nearly half a billion dollars back into the pockets of new Mexicans,” Governor Lujan Grisham said Wednesday, May 18th.
“Across the country, Americans are struggling with the high cost of the essentials. Here in New Mexico, we are doing everything we can to help New Mexico’s families.”
This rebate will be distributed to all New Mexico taxpayers for the next few weeks, regardless of income.
Taxpayers who receive money this month will receive another check worth the same amount in August.
You will not receive your discount until your return has been processed and you can check the status of your return at the state’s web portal.
If you have not filed your tax yet, you have until May 31, 2023 to file and still receive a discount.
In July, the state plans to send a rebate of up to $ 500 to low-income families.
Individuals earning less than $ 75,000 are eligible for $ 250, and household heads or joint files with less than $ 150,000 in income will receive $ 500.
Non-registrants are specifically eligible to apply for one-time benefits of $ 500 to $ 1,000, depending on family size.
Applications for non-files will be accepted by New Mexico Human Services Department until the end of May.
