California is disbursing up to $1,050 in “inflation relief” cheques.

According to a new wave of direct payments that would be made to more than 20 million Californians this year, governor Gavin Newsom revealed on Sunday. According to the governor, the state is offering payments of up to $1,050 as part of a brand-new “middle-class tax rebate.”

According to a joint statement from the governor and legislative leaders of California, the direct payments are a part of an “inflation relief package” in the state’s budget deal.

Your income as a household as well as the number of dependents you have will determine how much you receive. The breakdown is as follows:

Those who are single and make less than $75,000 must pay $350.

Between $75,000 and $125,000 in earnings: $250 payment

Between $125,001 and $250,000 in earnings: $200 payment

People who earn more than $250,000 are not compensated.

Joint filing

Up to $150,000 in earnings: $700 payment

$500 payout for earnings of between $150,001 and $250,000.

$250,001 to $500,000 in earnings: $200 payment

No payment is made to joint tax filers who earn more than $500,000.

Those who pay their taxes jointly or individually and have dependents are eligible for an additional sum. If you have at least one dependent, add the number that applies to you from the list above to the number that applies to you from the list below to get the total amount of money you’ll get.

Couples that file jointly and have at least one dependent receive the maximum benefit. They would receive a total of $1,050 in “inflation relief” payments, or $700 plus another $350.


According to lawmakers, the payouts will be sent to around 23 million Californians.

According to Nexstar’s California Capitol Bureau, the payments will begin in the latter part of October. By the beginning of next year, all of the payments should be made.

Similar to the stimulus checks sent last year by the Golden State, the payments will be made via direct deposit and debit cards.
