Stimulus Check: Are you one of the thousands of Americans who qualify for a surprising tax refund?

Some states are changing the way their taxes work this year, with many residents getting surprise refunds before the holidays.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has announced that letters will soon be sent to thousands of residents.

The letters will go to low-income families to demonstrate eligibility for the tax-forgiveness program.
