Millions of Americans are set to receive checks for $750 in August due to amendments under a program.
Under the law, Colorado’s state legislature has the power to decide how to refund the additional tax revenue by state.
when it was first announcedThe check was considered $500 for individual taxpayers and $1,000 for joint filers.
However, according to the governor’s office, there was a strong economic recovery in the state, resulting in a major comeback.
under amended Tax exemption program, individuals will receive $750 and joint filers will receive $1,500.
Governor Polis said taxpayers would have to file their returns by June 30 to get the tax exemption this summer.
Eligible taxpayers can expect to receive their money in the mail in August or September, depending on the state.
Colorado’s legislature initially set the filing deadline as May 31, but extended it by a month to allow more taxpayers to claim the cash.
This means that if you haven’t filed, you have a few days left to do so or your refund will be delayed.
It is not clear whether the payment will happen in multiple batches, or all at once.
Colorado residents who miss the deadline can still receive payments if they file by the extended filing deadline of October 17.
However, taxpayers who file after June 30 will not get their checks till January.
Those who filed by the standard deadline of April 15 need not take any additional action and will automatically receive their refund in the mail later this summer.
“Everyone in our state is feeling the impact of rising costs, and I forbid the government to sit on taxpayer money when it can be used to make life a little easier for the people of our state. ,” said Polis.
To be eligible, you must be a full-year resident of the state who was at least 18 years old as of December 31, 2021.
Governor Polis previously announced that 3.1 million residents would qualify for a refund.
