Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl.
That was the experience for many Californians last Friday, who received stimulus checks from Golden State Stimulus package signed by Governor Gavin Newsom earlier this year. The package accepts one-time payments of $ 600 or $ 1,200 per month. tax return for residents who received California Earned Income Tax Credit, typically those who earned less than $ 30,000 last year.
According to the State Franchise Tax Council (FTB), checks will be distributed twice a month and should start hitting bank accounts after April 15 for people who have filed tax returns between January 1 and March 1. Based on reactions on social media this morning. many recipients were surprised to receive that extra cash. Some speculated that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which is currently distributing third stimulus check from the federal government, felt extra generous.
In fact, the IRS has issued supplementary checks to taxpayers who did not receive the full amount of the previous stimulus – it calls them “plus-up” payments – and a group of these was delivered to bank accounts on April 14, so it is possible that some recipients may have received two unexpected checks this week. At this point, we take what we can get.
