$200 relief checks from a $5.5million pot are being sent to thousands – will you qualify?

OLDER By the end of the year, $200 payments will be sent, providing some respite for Americans.

According to WRVO Public Media, Onondaga County, New York lawmakers have passed a scheme that will provide seniors the money they needed to pay their expenses during the pandemic.

Peggy Chase, the chairwoman of the Health and Human Services Committee, said, “Even if they give them a small jump in Social Security, there’s not a lot of flexibility when we’re looking at the cost of everything else going up.

The estimated $5.5 million cost of the relief payments will be covered by the county’s claimed $200 million cash reserve.

What are the qualifications? 

You are eligible for a $200 check if you are registered for the Enhanced STAR property tax exemption for the 2022–2023 academic year.

Following are the requirements to qualify for the tax exemption:

  • One must be 65 or older to be a homeowner.
  • The maximum annual household income is $92,000.

Approximately 27,500 households are benefiting from the program.

Online forms are available for the STAR exemption.

They must be completed and filled out by an assessor.

If you aren’t enrolled currently, it’s not obvious if you can still be eligible for a $200 check.

A request for comment from The Sun was not answered by the county.

According to Syracuse.com, the checks will be issued in December.

Other payments going out

States all throughout the nation are also distributing tax refunds to citizens to help them combat inflation.

To its 2 million people, the state of Indiana has sent 1.5 million reimbursements.

A payment will be sent to nearly 4.3 million Hoosiers, or about 85% of the adult population of the state.

The payments, worth $125 for each individual and $250 for married couples, will keep coming throughout the summer.

Residents of Colorado who filed their taxes by June 30 will receive their refund checks in late August.

You can anticipate receiving your money in January if you file after that date.

For single filers, they are worth $750, but for joint filers, they are worth $1,500.

According to Governor Jared Polis, there are over 3.1 million residents waiting to get money.

Additionally, next month will see a one-time tax rebate for residents of Hawaii.

Individuals making under $100,000 will be given a $300 rebate.

If it is greater than that amount but less than $200,000, you will receive $100.

Families with children may also be eligible for increased funding.

A family of four, for instance, might receive $1,200.

Refunds are anticipated to start arriving in the latter week of August, according to Hawaii’s Department of Taxation.

Connecticut also provides eligible parents with a child tax credit, but the deadline to apply is coming up soon.

Families are eligible for up to three children and a maximum of $250 per child.

For instance, families are only permitted to claim up to $750.

The deadline to apply for the credits is July 31.

Payments should be made in August, according to Governor Ned Lamont.
