CALIFORNIA continues to send out Golden State checks to people in the West Coast state, all while new “stimulus” money is set to be sent to eligible Americans this week.
California has sent as much as $1,100 in new stimulus checks across the Golden State.
The state sent out the money ranging from $600 to $1,100 in a bid to close the gap in federal support. It is estimated that almost two-thirds of California residents are eligible for a stimulus payment, according to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office.
Meanwhile, the latest advance payments as part of Joe Biden’s child tax credit plan will be sent out on October 15. It is not a fourth stimulus check, which many have been asking for.
Families that do sign up for the payments could receive hundreds of dollars every month for each qualifying child.
The IRS is using 2020 tax returns to determine eligibility for the monthly payments, so those who have not filed their taxes yet could miss out on the benefits.

STUDENT LOAN PAYMENT MORATORIUM
President Biden has yet to implement his presidential election promise of $10,000 student loan forgiveness.
However, student debt repayments continue to be under a moratorium until January 31 of next year.
GOLDEN STATES STIMULUS DIRECT DEPOSITS
The majority of state stimulus payments will be sent out by direct deposit and they should arrive between now and October 15, according to Marca.
But, those who filed their tax return after August 20 are likely to face a wait of around 45 days so their check can be processed.
Some Americans will receive their stimulus checks in the post and they will be sent from October 4 until the end of the year.
TWO THIRDS OF CALIFORNIANS GET PAYMENT
Around two-thirds of residents in California are eligible to claim a $600 check as part of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Golden State stimulus program.
Some will receive a $500 or $1100 payment.
Californians that earn less than $75,000 are eligible to claim a stimulus check but there are some conditions.
Taxpayers must also have a valid Social Security number to claim the cash and they must not have received the first payment, according to National Interest.
MARYLAND PROPERTY TAX CREDITS CONTINUED
For instance, let’s say your household combined gross earnings were $30,000 and your property tax bill was $2,000.
You would then receive $320 in tax credits because the limit for that income threshold is $1,680.
Meanwhile, Marceline White, executive director of non-profit Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition, told The Baltimore Sun earlier this month that the tax credits are typically worth roughly $1,000 to city homeowners.
