West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin sunk the possibility of the Senate passing its version of the latest stimulus check bill before they end their session for the year. But that does not mean that people will also not be receiving new stimulus checks completely because California residents are set to receive theirs through the Golden State Stimulus 2 effort.
Golden State Stimulus 2 Checks to be Given to Thousands of its Residents
Around 794,000 Golden State Stimulus 2 checks are being mailed to California residents until December 31, BGR reported. That is equivalent to a total of $568 million for this batch.
After that, the state’s Franchise Tax Board said that eligible residents are expected to receive one more batch of payments as a final mailout that will be given from December 27 to January 11. They ask residents to wait up to three weeks to get their paper check in the mail.
According to the Franchise Tax Board of California, the state has already issued or announced that eligible residents will be receiving a total of more than 8.1 million Golden State Stimulus 2 checks, which is currently the number as of December 23. In total, these payments are worth nearly $5.8 billion.
Who are Qualified to Received Golden State Stimulus 2 Payments?
According to local news outlet KRCA3, residents who have filed their 2020 taxes by October 15 are eligible to receive stimulus checks. More so, California residents with an adjusted gross income of $1 to $75,000 are also eligible.
Additionally, other eligible recipients are those California residents for more than half of the 2020 tax year and state residents on the date that the payment is issued.
On the other hand, residents who already received the first round of Golden State Stimulus that is given to residents with lower incomes will not be able to get payments from the second batch of the program unless they have dependents. Also, payments of dependents are not allowed to be claimed by someone else.
